Erin Go Bragh Tirim pipes will seem very familiar to you at first glance, but these aren't anything like the cheap knockoffs with shank caps that would fall off and stems that would break. Tirim pipes are smooth briars that are finished in a warm walnut tone with a lustrous finish. The shank has a bright metal cap that is fully integrated so it's made to last. The stem has the recognizable fluted shape you would expect, but it's made with incredibly durable and brilliant ebony acrylic and uses the more comfortable fishtail bit. Finally, instead of using a reservoir to deliver a dry smoke, Erin Go Bragh Tirim pipes use a 9mm charcoal filter to reduce excess moisture and cool the smoke. Best of all, you'll save a lot with these pipes vs. similar briars.
