Brigham: System Sandblasted (23S) (Rock Maple Inserts) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-491-7434
Canadian marque Brigham's "23" bent Billiard is a smartly curved and gesturally sinuous interpretation of the shape-chart standard, offering a comfortable hands-free clench. The shank and stem 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, the "23" is an excellent example of Brigham's shaping style.
Brigham's System series comprises two different finishes, both of which are united by their deceptive simplicity and rugged wealth of texture. The first of these finishes is a craggy rustication done in a striated, wire-brushed style and stained an inky black hue to disguise any handling marks it might accrue. The other finish within the System line is a crisp sandblast stained a light tan to showcase the briar's natural grain. Both are unified by jet-black stems and a simple style, presenting the pipes they dress in classic palettes that suit their hard-working, pastoral appeal.-John McElheny
Like all of Brigham's lineup, this pipe also comes complete with the marque's signature Rock Maple Insert. This special insert comprises a rock maple dowel drilled with a 3.5mm airway and pressure-fitted in the tenon via a special metal cap, helping to remove moisture and unpleasant flavors that develop during the smoking process. No chemicals or adhesives are used to manufacture Brigham's Rock Maple Inserts, ensuring a flavor-neutral profile that doesn't interfere with the tobacco. Moreover, because of the drilling, the Rock Maple Insert is able to pass a pipe cleaner, even while the pipe is still assembled.
