Butz Choquin Briar Pipes:
The finest French export second only to Dom Perignon!
Butz Choquin pipes are hand crafted from the finest Mediterranean Briar according to a meticulous manufacturing process that has been perfected over a 140 year history through 4 generations. Every Butz Choquin briar block is dried naturally over several months before being passed through the hands of no fewer than 80 craftsmen until the final pipe is polished and inspected ready to be re-homed.
Butz Choquin Carat Liseuse Churchwarden:
Well Butz Choquin can never be accused of being average. They always seem to be breaking the boundaries of pipe design and producing something different. The Carat Liseuse is a large Churchwarden with a very uniquely shaped bowl with an attractive shell styled mounting, which securely holds the mouthpiece. It is nice to see that the mouthpiece is more robust than standard churchwardens so it should stand up to a bit more abuse if your the type who drops your pipes regularly. The pipe is very well balanced for a Churchwarden and as always the grain on the Briar is beautiful and finished in a rich orangey brown stain.
Metal Condensing Filter:
The Butz Choquin Carat Liseuse Churchwarden Briar Pipe incorporates 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.
