Moonshine: Dark Smooth Cannonball Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-767-2783
Introduced in 2018, Moonshine's Cannonball shape was designed by popular demand, with customer requests for a hearty, muscular jaw-hanger. It's among Moonshine's most robust and substantial forms, exuding stout proportions through a voluptuous Apple bowl and tight-knight transition, yet its mass is well distributing through a full bend, offering comfortable smoking balance and a rather compact overall profile.
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 Dark smooth finish, highlighting the briar's natural grain in a smoky and alluring stain.-Truett Smith
