Yello Bole pipes are either made of either imported Italian briar or a synthetic material called Brylon. This material was developed by S.M.Frank in the mid 60's as a cheaper, more durable alternative to briar. All Yello Boles feature push bits with an aluminum scoop to help trap flakes and tars in the shank. This scoop is removeable if desired.
*** Yello-Bole pipes come in assorted shapes, in either straight of bent. The pipe you receive may be different than the one pictured. This is how the manufacturer, S.M. Frank sells Yello-Bole and Medico pipes.
