Valhalla, the glorious, mythological banquet hall, is the inspiration for the newest line of Nørding pipes – the Valhalla Spigot Series. According to legend, Viking heroes who died in combat were retrieved from the battlefield by the Valkyries and taken to Valhalla where they would drink, smoke and party with the gods. Erik set out to create a pipe series worthy of these legendary warriors.
The Valhalla series is crafted from some of the finest briar available. Series 200 is partly rusticated, whereas the Nørding signature deep-reddish, light brown and orange stain is applied to the series 400 and 500 pipes. Both of the latter series are smooth, and the gloss finish dramatically highlights the beautiful grains. All stamped “Handmade by Erik Nording” and fitted with acrylic stems.

About Nørding Pipes
Nørding Pipes is the brainchild of Denmark’s Erik Nørding. What started as a passionate hobby in the late 1950s has since evolved into a multi-generational family-driven business. Erik Nørding turned 80 in 2019 and has been making pipes professionally for more than 55 years. Erik is still very much involved in the business and he still produces a few handmade high-grade pipes on his own. Knud Nørding – Erik’s son – is managing the sales and marketing worldwide. The third generation and Knud’s son, Victor, is involved in the sales and marketing activities along with Margarita Nørding, Knud’s wife.
Nørding is a family-owned pipe factory located just outside of Copenhagen in Denmark. They aim to produce uniquely beautiful pipes to give you that fantastic and unforgettable smoking experience over and over again. Innovation, quality, and passion are key components in their daily work to make a Nørding pipe your next choice.
