Moonshine: Wire Rusticated Long Stem Deviled Egg with Coffee Stem Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-767-3166
Moonshine's shaping style draws on the rich, rugged history of old Appalachia — perhaps most personified in their popular Devil Anse rendition. The short Belge design became especially popular after the History Channel's 2012 miniseries, Hatfields & McCoys in which Kevin Costner's character, William "Devil Anse" Hatfield, smokes a similar shape. This Deviled Egg pipe riffs off of the iconic Devil Anse shape, featuring the same forward-canted bowl, but one of taller, leaner, Egg-like roundness as opposed to the Devil Anse's typically more Apple-like bowl. However, the Long Stem version of the Deviled Egg elongates the shape's familiar Nosewarmer proportions, creating a sleek, elegant profile in contrast to the traditional, compact muscularity of the Devil Anse.
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 Wire rusticated finish, offering a crisp, wire-brushed texture.-Truett Smith
