Brigham: Voyageur (126) (Rock Maple Inserts) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-491-5834
Though at a quick glance Brigham's "26" might appear to be simply a slightly bent version of the "16" straight Rhodesian, this shape is actually quite a bit broader in the bowl, which furthermore boasts a single beadline, rather than a set of beadlines at the bevel. Along with filling out the hand a bit more, this difference in shaping also allows for a noticeable measure of extra breadth to the tobacco chamber.
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.- Jeffery Sitts
