Variety is definitely the name of the game with Big Ben Gazelle Nature pipes. Made in the Gubbels factory, by a company with a 145 year reputation of excellence, these pipes have to be made of the finest briar, which is subjected to extensive curing to make the wood light and absorbent. The quality is most important with this line because the staining is a rich, golden color, so only the best grain will do., and the Gazelle Nature pipes are offered in one of the widest range of shapes in the Big Ben catalog. All of the stems are made of durable and attractive black acrylic that will never oxidize, and every stem in the Gazelle series will accept 9 mm charcoal filters to assure a gurgle-free experience. The final touch is a classy metal and acrylic trim ring that give each pipe a more finished look. When you consider that you get all this for under $100, Big Ben Gazelle Nature might be one of the best values anywhere.
