Rattray's: Brave Heart Sandblasted (154) (9mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-599-4905
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 "154" bent Brandy. This is one of the smaller, more compact shapes within the Brave Heart series, but it still offers the stout shaping and muscular proportions favored by the Scottish marque, the bowl tapering from above a voluptuous heel for a substantial in-hand feel.
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 dark, sandblasted finish.-Truett Smith
