Stanwell was founded in 1942 by Poul Stanwell Nielsen whose passion for pipes started what has today become one of the world's leading manufacturers.
But the story about Stanwell is not complete without mentioning Sixten Ivarsson who changed pipe design radically during his more than 30 years as pipe designer at Stanwell. Today the famous Tom Eltang is chief designer but the product line has pipes designed by literally all of the Great Danes like S. Bang, Chonowitsch, Ilsted, Anne Julie and many more. Many of Stanwell's shapes are now classics which are treasured worldwide by smokers and collectors.
Stanwell has probably the World's most modern production line which is why the company is highly successful at producing high-quality pipes at very affordable prices.
