This Brigham is a perfect rendition on the classic straight Apple, maybe even a little better. It has a well-shaped bowl with a roomy chamber. The shank is of perfect width and proportion. As and added bonus, the bottom is flattened to make it a very good sitter. The rich walnut finish plays nicely with the briar's grain. The Rock Maple insert helps wick out the oils and tars that cause "tongue bite."
