Brigham: Klondike (16) (Rock Maple Inserts) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-491-6956
The classic Bulldog often takes one of two forms: either a broad and squat version or one that's taller and more slender. The latter is represented here by Brigham's "16" shape, the forward-canted bowl being slightly more trim and longer in its downward taper. The structured nature of the Bulldog is well maintained, though, with bowl wrapped by twin beadlines and the shank paneled in diamond cross section. Presented here in the Klondike series, this particular example displays the briar's natural grain in a smoky stain and smooth finish.
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
