English Estates: BBB Thorneycroft Sandblasted Canadian (506) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-002-34561

BBB stands for "Britain's Best Briars" today, though when it was founded in 1860 it was as "Bloomfield's Best Briars." A storied English marque with over a century of history behind them, BBB presents us with this "506" Canadian, a classically-oriented iteration of the timeless shape. The transition here is wide and gives way to a sleek, compressed length of shank and stem, the pair's ovoid shaping placing much of the visual weight here on the bowl. Said bowl stands atop a rounded heel and grows tall, tapering walls that take on a slight forward cant, offering this pipe a touch of dynamism in profile. Dressed in the dark, inky sandblast of the Thorneycroft series, this piece showcases handsome grain and a serious aesthetic.
