Already very popular, the BriarWorks' Signature Series Calabash (designed by Todd Johnson) is nothing short of an innovation in American pipe production. A handmade, all-briar, fully-functional Calabash was the goal, and although they accomplished just that, the BriarWorks team just wasn't satisfied. Taking it a step further, they decided that it would be much more fun, and functional, if the bowls themselves were modular.
With the use of magnets, they were able to tweak the design to accommodate interchangeable bowls for those of us who like to experiment with aesthetic, while offering the ability to dedicate specific bowls to one type of tobacco, or a single blend — all using the same pipe.
I've been enjoying mine for some time now and wanted to demonstrate just how easy it is to customize and add bowls to one of these fine pipes. With one pipe, and a few extra bowls, you can even have an entire rotation with you, when space is at a premium.
