Brigham: Klondike (16) (Rock Maple Inserts) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-491-7640
Brigham's "16" shape defines two profiles, both a straight Bulldog and a straight Rhodesian depending on the series to which it belongs. As a Bulldog, the shape's classic profile is rendered with clean-lined crispness, especially through the diamond-shaped shank, the ridges lining the flanks continuing down the fore and joining together at the heel. As a Rhodesian, the diamond paneling through the shank becomes a rounded taper continuing through the stem and placing more emphasis on the bowl. In both iterations, the bowl grows to a high-set waist marked by a pair of beadlines, with these additionally marking a slow taper to the rim. A gentle forward cant adds a touch of understated dynamism to the profile and keeps things interesting, while the wide transition leaves plenty of room to drape a digit.
Named for the Klondike region of northwestern Canada's Yukon territory, the Klondike series is among Brigham's most premium offerings, combining excellent quality briar with a golden-amber stain polished to showcase the briar's natural grain. Presented across 13 of the Canadian marque's signature shapes, the Klondike line is an homage to Canada's natural beauty and the Klondike region's historic gold rush through the late 19th century.-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.
