French Estates: Brigham Heritage (56) (Rock Maple Inserts)
Product Number: 004-003-24025
The stout proportions and elongated heel of Brigham's "56" really gives this bent Dublin a firm, solid disposition. The muscular, conservatively flared bowl sits perched on the end of an equally hearty shank, as the stem tapers trimly toward the bit. A firm and handy number, this one wears the Bruyere stain of the Heritage series of a classic aesthetic.
Like all of Brigham's lineup, this pipe is designed to accept the marque's signature Rock Maple Inserts. A rock maple dowel is drilled with a 3.5mm airway and pressure-fitted with a special metal cap that allows it to fit securely within the pipe while also being easily removable. The dowel is able to take the smoke from the bowl and pass it through the shank and a large section of the stem, removing moisture and unpleasant flavors that develop during the smoking process. No chemicals or adhesives are used to manufacture the rock maple inserts, ensuring it remains flavor-neutral. And because of the drilling, a rock maple insert is able to pass a pipe cleaner, even while the pipe is still assembled. The insert's design also helps prevent moisture from traveling back into the bowl or up the stem, helping to reduce pipe gurgle in the process.-Truett Smith
