Brigham: System Rusticated (26S) (Rock Maple Inserts) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-491-6419
A demurely bent Rhodesian, Brigham's "26" lends the shape chart classic an easy curvature through the shank and stem, the duo taking on an easy taper and slight upward trajectory from the wide transition before the stem's gentle downturn. This combination balances a bulb-like, ridgeline-wrapped bowl that stands atop a pronounced heel, its high waist marking a taper to the rim. The wire-style rustication of the System series dresses the stummel of this pipe in plentiful striations and a jet-black stain sure to disguise any handling marks the stummel may accrue.
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.-John McElheny
