Moonshine: Leather Sandblasted Devil Dog with Tortoise Stem Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-767-3160
Moonshine pipes exude a rustic aura, incorporating muscular shaping and compact profiles into their Appalachian-inspired aesthetic. An excellent example of Moonshine's signature style is the Devil Dog, which is a hybrid of the Bulldog and Devil Anse shapes. The pronounced forward-cant of the Devil Anse is instantly recognizable in the Devil Dog's dynamic profile; however, Moonshine eschews the Devil Anse's traditionally supple, Apple-shaped bowl, opting instead for a robust Bulldog bowl replete with traditional beadlines on its broad waist. The combination of the two iconic shapes imbues the Devil Dog with an exceptionally muscular character while offering the everyday practicality of a Nosewarmer.
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, and Micah Redmond. All three 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 Leather sandblasted finish, offering rugged texture and a rustic persona.--Zach Podl
