Brigham: Voyageur (123) (Rock Maple Inserts) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-491-5831
The bowl, shank, and degree of bend of this "23" are all on par with the typical image of the traditional bent Billiard, but in Brigham's usual style, the area around the transition has been beefed up a bit. This is something Brigham has been doing for about a century now, adding substance to the shank and transition and providing room for their proprietary Rock Maple system.
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.-Truett Smith
