Brigham: Tundra (36) (Rock Maple Inserts) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-491-7328
This "36" bent Brandy from Brigham features a subtle taper to the smooth, concave rim from the plump heel, lending the piece its distinctive shape. The shank extends from the muscular, tight-knit transition before giving way to a tapered stem of jet-black acrylic, making a subtle downturn for easy clenching. The junction between shank and stem is marked by an accent band of brass, adding a dose of flash to the pipe's profile. The stummel wears the walnut-hued, Tundra sandblast, adding a light texture to delight the fingers and 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
