Brigham: Algonquin (247) (Rock Maple Inserts) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-491-6940
Fitting into Brigham's typically classic shaping style, this "47" is a traditional take on the bent Dublin — the bowl being stolid and robust with a conservative flare toward the rim. The transition is slightly angled to balance the stem's recurve, and the heel extends into the shank's underside, reinforcing the design's muscular motif. This example is found in the walnut stain of the Algonquin line, and the robust shank not only matches the rest of the shaping, but also houses the Canadian marque's proprietary Rock Maple Inserts.
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
