Big Ben Royal Nature pipes capture the feel of the old Wellington pipes, but with updated styling. These beautiful briars have a light, golden stain, offsetting the gleaming black acrylic stems dramatically. There's a bright metal cap on the end of the shank to give them a faux-military appearance, and the flared stem completes the Wellington look. The Royal Nature pipes all take a 9mm filter to reduce moisture and tongue bite. Of course, if you prefer unfiltered pipes, you can use our 9mm to 3mm adapter to convert it. But what makes these pipes especially attractive is that you get the look of pipes that are much more expensive for well under $100. The quality of wood and the engineering make the Big Ben Royal Nature line one of the best buys in briar pipes. Give one of these a try and we'll be willing to bet it won't be your last Big Ben pipe.
