BriarWorks: Classic Dark Sandblasted with White Stem (C81) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-696-3732

The "C91" and "C81" are BriarWorks' traditional Apple designs, the "C91" a bent version and this "C81" representing the straight rendition. The bowl offers a supple roundness for delightful substance in hand, and it's fitted to a trim shank and saddle stem for an iconic, archetypal interpretation of the shape-cart standard, elevated by the American workshop's signature style of plump curves and appreciable muscularity.

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 sandblasted finish, offering rugged texture and a rustic persona.
