This is a good article, but it needs some clean up and may also need either a revision or a clarification of the pipe's time line. Specifically, I'm referring to the period when Lane owned this brand, for as written, the period during which Ben Wade marque had been reduced to shoddily made "seconds" was going on at the same time that Preben Holm was producing the Danish made Ben Wades. This would make no business sense at all. I would assume that the era of the Ben Wade "seconds" would have preceded an expensive Danish rebirth, not accompanied it. But if I'm wrong and that is the case, please accept my apologies for wasting your time.
