Brigham: Acadian (16) (Rock Maple Inserts) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-491-8501

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.

The Acadian series is named after the descendants of the French who settled in the Acadia colony in the 17th and 18th centuries. Acadia, at that time, comprised modern day New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island, but over the course of many centuries, the Acadian people migrated throughout North America. Honoring the Acadian people and their rich heritage, Brigham's Acadian series offers a number of their most recognizable shapes in a warm, grain-defining smooth finish.

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.
