Brigham: Mountaineer (323) (Rock Maple Inserts) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-491-7349
Brigham's "23" bent Billiard is a smartly curved and gesturally sinuous interpretation of the shape chart standard, lending itself well to clenching despite its weight. The shank and stem here take on an acrobatic posture, and their slightly exaggerated size lends the composition a muscular demeanor, something continued in the gently tapering bowl. Comfortable in both the hand and the jaw, this piece comes dressed in the vibrant auburn stain of the Canadian marque's Mountaineer series, revealing handsome grain and offering a glossy, eye-catching texture.
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
