Brigham: Heritage (59) (Rock Maple Inserts)
Product Number: 002-491-1320
Featuring a solid, compact, yet soft-edged bowl paired with a proportionally rather long shank and stem, Brigham's take on the traditional French-inspired bent Billiard has quite a bit of character all its own. As someone who tends to prefer traditional shapes in darker finishes, I think the smokey dark walnut and warm amber contrasts of the Algonquin are perfect for this design. Like all Brigham pipes, this dark-finished Algonquin rendition also features their Rock Maple filter system, to wick away both condensation and the oils and tars which can cause "tongue bite", leaving only a cool, dry smoke.
