Brigham: Tundra (65) (Rock Maple Inserts) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-491-5530
A comparatively deep-chambered bent Billiard from Brigham, the "65" puts a bit of extra swoop in its inherent S-curve profile, making the extra bowl height seem right at home in the design, further balancing the visual and physical weight with a lengthy shank-and-stem arrangement. Right at home in my hand, it provides a comforting presence and is easy to index given the rich, low-profile Tundra sandblast that brings the briar's grain to life — all accented by an elegant brass band.
Like all of Brigham's lineup, this pipe also comes complete with 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.- Joel Balyeat
