Sandblasted Apple with Bamboo

Product Number: 002-514-0062

As much as we may now associate bamboo stems with pipes of the Japanese school, we should remember that they originated in European pipemaking, as a means of conserving briar while offering a more exotic aesthetic to gentlemanly smoking instruments. Coincidentally, in the beginning of the 20th century Brigham, the Canadian pipe manufacturer, discovered that there were two different natural materials that could serve as a sort of natural tube-filter to wick away tars and impurities from tobacco smoke - rock maple, and bamboo. Brigham may have gone with rock maple for their unique insert system (likely due to cost and ease-of-manufacturing concerns), but the aesthetics of a fine piece of bamboo, like the stout two knuckles worth found on this plump, broad-chambered Apple have seen its use popularized across most of the great design schools.
