Though it keeps to a pretty classical English style, I'd have a difficult time pegging down the shape classification of this Brigham "65". Billiard, Egg, and even a hint of Acorn appear to be present. Playfully named after the traditional term for the wind which can turn the eastern Rockies from deep winter into mild summer weather without warning, the Chinook finish features a light sandblast perfect for retaining a design's clean lines, and a deep black finish to accentuate them. As with all Brigham pipes they also feature the Rock Maple system, to wick away both condensation and the oils and tars which can cause "tongue bite", leaving only a cool, dry smoke.
