Brigham: Mountaineer (363) (Rock Maple Inserts) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-491-7113
This "63" Pear from Brigham features a stout, muscular bowl paired to a flared shank and arcing, tapered stem of jet-black vulcanite. The bowl possesses a firm, pronounced heel that adds a touch of angularity to the design, extending slightly past the robust transition for a hearty disposition in hand. The rim of the bowl is chamfered, lending a subtle, soft note to the shape in profile and aiding in the loading of a preferred blend. It's finished in the smoky, walnut stain of the Mountaineer finish, perfectly accentuating the natural grain orientation of the briar.
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.--Davin Hylton
