Poul Winslöw held his first job with the Danish pipe maker Preben Holm. In 1967, Preben Holm was advertising for apprentices to his pipe-factory. A young lad by the name of Poul Winslow answered the ad. Young and optimistic, Poul thought he should start making pipes directly, so he was a little disappointed when he found that his first duties were to sweep floors & perform other unqualified tasks. It did not take long for him to take part in the production of pipes, and showcase his abilities. Just a few years later he found himself the head-assistant of Preben Holm. These days, Poul has re-built an out-house into a quite small yet organized place for pipe production. He works here together with 2 assistants making about 900 high-class freehand pipes a year to be sold all around the world.
