BriarWorks: Classic Dark Rusticated (C91) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-696-2988

On BriarWorks' classic shape chart, the "C91" designates a traditional bent Apple, complementing the American workshop's "C81" straight version. It hews closely to the timeless form's archetypal design, merging with BriarWorks' typically muscular aesthetic and fluid bend to feature a robust and hearty bowl with a slight taper toward the rim. Such stout dimensions offer a substantial in-hand presence, yet the the more slender shank and stem lend grace and poise in profile while also balancing the bowl's mass for a comfortable smoking posture.

As the name suggests, BriarWorks' Classic series comprises iconic, shape-chart standards and represents the workshop's standard-production lineup. While every BriarWorks stummel is carved on CNC (computer numerical control) machines based on pre-established templates for consistent shaping across renditions, the stem-fitting and finishing processes are entirely hand-applied by the American workshop's team of artisans: Pete Prevost, Bill Shalosky, Micah Redmond, and Sam Adebayo. All four men are artisan pipe makers in their own rights, and BriarWorks' production model of combining mass-production processes with hand-applied, artisanal techniques results in modestly priced pipes with the engineering and aesthetic quality of handmade work. This particular example wears the workshop's Dark rusticated finish, offering a crisp, wire-brushed texture.
