Beginning in 1906 by Roy Brigham, Brigham pipes has been long known for affordable briars. Brigham developed a reputation for his high quality workmanship by 1818, and by then he wanted to solve an occurring issue brought up by pipe enthusiasts known as tongue bite. Discovering an unique Rock Maple filter system, Brigham reached his goals that soon spread to the masses. The hollowed out wooden tube made of rock maple is fitted into the pipe and extends into the stem to reduce tongue bite and excessive moisture. There's a wide variety of shapes and finishes to choose from including Brigham Giante and Brigham Klondike from the Brigham pipe brand.
