Moonshine: Wire Rusticated Bent Egg Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-767-2709
The shaping style of Moonshine's pipes most often prioritizes sturdy, compact pieces designed for everyday use and eminent practicality. They exude the ruggedness and stalwart nature of the brand's Appalachian roots, offering distinctive renditions of timeless shapes, and that aesthetic is personified in Moonshine's bent Egg design. Combining Nosewarmer length with a comfortable bend, hearty bowl, and sweeping forward cant, this pipe offers respectable chamber depth in a convenient size, as well as a sturdy dose of muscularity for in-hand substance and durability.
Every Moonshine stummel is carved on CNC (computer numerical control) machines at the BriarWorks factory in Columbia, Tennessee. Though each individual pipe is based on pre-established templates for consistent shaping across renditions, the stem-fitting and finishing processes are entirely hand-applied by the American workshop's team of artisans: Pete Prevost, Bill Shalosky, Micah Redmond, and Sam Adebayo. All four men are artisan pipe makers in their own rights, and BriarWorks' production model of combining mass-production processes with hand-applied, artisanal techniques results in modestly priced pipes with the engineering and aesthetic quality of handmade work. This particular Moonshine example wears the workshop's Wire rusticated finish, offering a crisp, wire-brushed texture.-Truett Smith
