Rattray's: Brave Heart Light Smooth (153) (9mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-599-4865
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 "153" Apple. Unlike other renditions which feature more squat, spherical bowls, this Rattray's rendition is of the taller variety, exhibiting an Egg-like roundness and a much deeper chamber. The shank continues the bowl's muscular shaping, stepping down slightly to the tapered stem, which is drilled to accommodate a 9mm filter.
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 vivid, honey-blonde stain.-Truett Smith
