Brigham: Algonquin (247) (Rock Maple Inserts) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-491-7894
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 still 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.
The Algonquin series draws inspiration from Canada's Algonquin Provincial Park and the calming serenity of nature. Using Brigham's highest-quality briar, the Algonquin series dresses pipes in a vivid chestnut smooth finish, showcasing a fetching array of grain. Offered in 12 different shapes, the Algonquin series exudes traditional appeal, and each pipe would make a fine addition to any smoker's regular rotation.-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.
