BBB (Britains Best Briars) London Made Pipes
One of a handfull of pipe manufacturers that can truly call themselves London Made. BBB pipes have been around for well over a century in the Oppenheimer factory with their flagship brand Comoys. We haven’t seen any new releases from BBB for quite a while so it was a pleasant and much welcomed surprise to see a new range on the stand this year. The BBB Sprint is a new range from BBB who have remained very traditional over the years but this year they have added some subtle contemporary styling.
BBB Sprint Green
The BBB Sprint Red is a classic bent Apple, with a tapered stem. The bowl is finished in a unique deep brown with a hint of green, which compliments the rich Brass and red bands in the stem. It is a good sized pipe with fairly thick briar walls to help prevent overheating while the modest overall dimensions help keep the weight down. The bore is smaller than you would expect for a pipe of this size, which is good for those who don’t want a full bodied smoke hour long smoke. The pipe is filtered with the metal condensing style filter system.
Condensing Metal Filter
The BBB Sprint Briar pipes incorporate the re-usable metal filter system. The metal filter is suspended in the middle of a moisture trap, which forces the smoke to spiral round the cool metal before entering the stem. This causes condensation, which naturally removes tar and moisture deposits from the smoke trapping them in the shank for a cool pleasant smoking experience. Simply wipe clean in between smokes.
The metal filter can be removed all together for smokers who prefer a totally un-restricted full bodied smoke.
