Philip Vigen started as an apprentice in W. Ø. Larsen’s workshop in 1972 and stayed there until it was closed at the end of the 70s. Then he started to work for Pibe-Dan and the first pipes stamped Ph. Vigen were made during that period. When Pibe-Dan was closed in 1991 Vigen was on his own for a few years, before he in 1993 was hired by Bjarne to make the high-grade pipes for him. After Bjarne’s death in 2008 Vigen has stopped making pipes, a decision he hopefully will reconsider in the future.
