New Pipes: Butz-Choquin: Cherrywood Simoun Sandblasted Black (9mm)  

Product Number: 002-010-0556

Well, the first time around my best guesses regarding the origins of this Butz-Choquin line's name was that it refereed to one of two things: either a Japanese cartoon, or a 1930s French aircraft, the Caudron Simoun, which was used to set more than one long-distance flight record during its day. This did, however, still leave the question as to what the latter (the more likely of the two, I hope you'll agree) itself referred to. As it so happened, trying to figure that out led to what is in all likelihood the real answer; a type of exceptionally hot and dry, sand-stirring cyclonic wind which occurs around the Levant, Egypt, and the Arabian Peninsula. This would indeed seem pretty appropriate for a series of sandblasted briars, and especially so here, given just how consistently these particular B.C.s are turning up with considerable displays of ring grain.
