Moonshine: Wire Rusticated Short Fuse Cannonball with Coffee Stem Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-767-3257

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 distributed through a full bend, offering comfortable smoking balance and a rather compact overall profile. In 2022, the workshop debuted this Short Fuse Cannonball version, featuring the same hearty, voluptuous bowl as the original — only fitted to a shorter stem. It presents the Cannonball's beloved muscularity and roundness, but in a Nosewarmer size that makes for the perfect take-anywhere pipe.

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.
