PostSubject: Brigham Pipes. Anybody use one ?   Sun May 27, 2012 4:17 pm



I was lookin in the P&C magazine /catalog,, and came across the brigham pipes, and the "Rock Maple Insert" they use as a filter type thing.

Have any of you used one?
I just looked at a bunch online, and they seem to have a a few shapes I like,
So, out of curiosity, I figured if theres good reviews on the pipe, I might have to put one on my list of wants,, for someday,,, Very Happy after I get a couple Lillehammers Very Happy

I bought one last year; I'm pretty satisfied with it. (one of the prince shapes) I have no idea if the insert is doing much, but it's a smooth smoker so far.

I have two Brighams and Im satisfied with them. The inserts absorb moisture allow a pipe cleaner to pass thru them and can be rinsed off and reused.
The pipes I have are rusticated one dots and I think they are a good buy for the price.

Nice! So the one dots have that tube too huh?
Must be ALL of theyre pipes have that?
The prices didnt seem too bad either, and they have a good spread of different qualities.
Cool,

I've got a church warden I bought from Sasquatch and it's a fine smoker and nicely made. The maple inserts seem to take up enough of the moisture to keep them from gurgling, but don't seem to impact the taste. I find if I take them out and run them under hot water, I can use them up eight times before I replace them. It's really just a hollow wood "stinger" with an aluminum tip. I wouldn't think it would do much, but it seems to work for me.

Dang Natch, a Churchwarden? NICE !

Theyre site says you can get around 30 smokes out of a filter, if you clean it, and if you use 2 and rotate them...

I kind of wouldnt mind havin a Canadian Style, that was made in Canada Very Happy thats sort of along the lines of what Im thinking.

I just cant seem to come across any Lillehammers, Anywhere! Evil or Very Mad

Thus what was intended as friendly advice about jumping on a high grade example of any obscure pipe you like when you have a chance to. Chances can be few and far between.

The Brighams look like nice pipes. Never had one, but comment on them over the years has been uniformly favorable.

I've been curious about them too. (Not that I need another pipe right now) Dusty, please let us know if you get one and what you think about it.

Just smoked my 3-dot prince to remind myself of how it smoked -- nice smoker, but a wider stem than most (to accomodate the insert?) and v open draw -- it smokes pretty fast. I'll have to remember to smoke flakes and plugs in it.

Ohhh! Dr T, I never thought of the fact that the stems would be wider to accomodate the insert.

Man, One of these days I think I'd like to go to either a HUGE Pipe store,, (or B&M as you all call them) or maybe a pipe show.
Then a guy could see all the different brands.

I should have been clearer, btw -- slightly thicker stem (top to bottom), rather than side-to-side. Not uncomfortable, though

I have a Brigham and would agree with fellow Brothers that it is a soild pipe. I have a two dot billard sitter that is a well made dry smoker( thanks in at least some part due to the rock maple inserts). I would say Dusty they are worth the money.

Brothers,

DrT999 correctly identified that the shanks of the Brigham pipes need to be slightly larger in order to accommodate the rock maple insert. In order to balance the stem they do end up being sturdier and less delicate looking and feel than some. This does influence shape design leaning toward traditional shapes rather than avant garde. In the end Brigham strives to make "good smokers" as one person has suggested.

Mr More, Its a pleasure to meet you !

I myself , think that in todays world, we dont see enough business owners that would take the time , to keep up with customer's and potential customer's, questions regarding theyre product.

We do see a bit of it on this forum though.
I personally think it shows a great deal of character on your part, to take time to answer questions, and be there to answer these questions straight from the horses mouth ,so to speak.

Heck, most businesses take forever just to talk with customer service, and when you do , often times, theres not alot of knowledge there.

So, Very Happy You Sir, have gained a customer. Very Happy (and hopefully a few more ) through this thread.

Just a little bit more research , and I will be smoking one of your pipes very soon.

Thank You, for taking your time to be a part of this discussion.

Dusty

Thanks Dusty. Pipe smokers are no shrinking violets when it comes to opinions. That's what makes it such a great community. Sharing ideas; thoughts; experiences; and opinions. We all have our own preferences for tobacco; pipes; shapes; finishes; and so on and in the end we're all in agreement that smoking a pipe is just so enjoyable.

But back to pipes, has anyone seen the Dunhill Titantic? The tamper has a piece of a chair that floated up in Nova Scotia. The execution on this thing out of this world!

A little late to the game on this one, but I'll toss another vote in the "Brigham Corner". Although many people note that the newer Italian manufactured Brig's don't smoke as well as the old Canadian made ones (discernable at a glance by the tenon material - newer pipes are delrylin, while the older are aluminum); I think that's more due to the Canadian made having several decades of love and break-in.
My current collection sports a full 23 Brigs of various ages, grades and shapes - and I say that they stand up to, or even outsmoke big-name English, Dutch, Italian, and American pipes that I've paid three times as much for.
Another bonus to the Brigham system that many seem to miss is that with a quick modification, you can fit the rock-maple filter into a 6mm filter-pipe to reduce the draw to something you couldn't park a truck in. I nip a bit off the end, then wrap a 1cm strip of foil around the back until the OD is 6mm.

Finally, keep an eye out for Brigham tobaccos. I have heard that the blends earmarked for U.S. release are very close to landing on shelves...I've not come across a miss from their blends yet (other than ridiculous Canadian taxation). Seriously, do yourself a favour and check them out - the "Mr. B's D-Series" out Dunhill's the current Dunhill offerings - and if you ever happen upon a tin of "King's Street Anniversary Blend", you'd be doing yourself a disfavour not picking it up!

Can't believe i just came upon this thread!

I might be a little biased here but if i had to choose one brand of pipes to smoke for the rest of my life it would be Brigham. I've been impressed with how great they smoke since day one. Now true i only use the filters until they are broken in but the first dozen or so smokes are nice and dry.

I personally have their pipes of they year from 2006-11 and i must say there are some real beautys if you can get your hands on them. The thicker stems suit me just fine and adds kind of a "calling-card" look and feel to them. Right now i am patiently waiting on what they might have in-store for the 2012.

For the price you can't go wrong with a shape #19 (Canadian which is just over 7 inches in length i think) great smoke.

my two cents.

Yep, its a Canadian shape 19 that I will be getting.

So?? question, what year did they quit making them in Canada?

Its not a huge deal to me , but I do want a Canadian, "made in Canada" to be my first.

I grew up 5 miles south of the border, and Ive ran around B.C. and Alberta enough to where I feel like its a second home. Thats why I have to have one made in Canada.
