Brigham: Algonquin (223) (Rock Maple Inserts) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-491-8063
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 mass. 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. This combination takes on its own taper to the button as well, placing further visual weight on the bowl and pulling the eye forward while keeping the outline hearty.
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.
