BriarWorks: Classic Brown Sandblasted with Amber Stem (C53) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-696-8843

The Classic series from BriarWorks is devoted to just that: classic pipe chart standards. Joining the "C51," this "C53" adds another Bulldog rendition to the Classic line's traditional portfolio. More squat, compact, and muscular than the "C51," this "C53" caters to vintage English and French style, with its combination of robust proportions and abbreviated, nosewarmer length. Lightweight and with a pocket-friendly profile, it still offers a chamber of commendable depth for leisurely, on-the-go smoking. This particular example is found in the workshop's earth-stained sandblast for a rugged disposition and a timeless color palette to continue the reserved, traditional aesthetic.

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, and Micah Redmond. All three 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 Brown sandblasted finish, offering rugged texture and a rustic persona.
