Brigham: System Sandblasted (47S) (Rock Maple Inserts) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-491-7446
One of Brigham's more deeply bent Dublin designs, the Canadian marque's "47" presents with a sweeping curvature through the shank and stem, both ebbing out of a rather tight transition that yet maintains enough space to drape a digit. The shank tapers into a similarly tapering stretch of demurely curved stem, the combination here offering a comfortable smoking posture and potential for jaw-hanging. The bowl sits atop a pronounced, pointed heel and showcases a steady flare out to a broad rim, its classic lines balancing the shank and stem well.
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.
