Rattray's: Brave Heart Grey Smooth (150) (9mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-599-4515
The Brave Heart line from Rattray's features six shapes: the "149," "150," "151," "152," "153," and "154" designs. All differ in exact form and dimensions, but all are united by the Brave Heart's two finishes and flashy, nickel accent. Offered here is the "150" bent Apple. It's a squat, plump, and nicely rounded piece that features a full-bodied bowl and gently sinuous shank and stem arcing away out back. Comfortable in hand and charming of character, this shape maintains an elegant sense of balance that's sure to make it a favorite.
Depicted in Mel Gibson's Oscar-winning epic, Braveheart, William Wallace was a 13th-century Scottish knight and revolutionary during Scotland's fight for independence from England. Wallace was captured and executed before the end of the war, but his leadership was essential to Scotland's later independence — specifically Wallace's defeat of the English troops at the Battle of Stirling Bridge despite being overwhelmingly outnumbered. His legacy and martyrdom have since made him Scotland's national hero, and Rattray's Brave Heart line honors Wallace's historic significance and the work of all those who have fought against oppression. This series from the Scottish marque offers pipes adorned in a broad, nickel accent, contrasting handsomely against this example's smooth finish and dark, smoky stain.-Truett Smith
