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 Junior Liseuse Churchwarden:
The Butz Choquin Junior Liseuse is a smaller Churchwarden for Butz Choquin but is easily classed as a Churcwarden in the overall scheme of things rather than a reading pipe. The bowl is refreshingly larger than you would usually see on a churchwarden with a heftier stem to match, which is great as we get never ending desperate requests for new churchwarden stems from daintier pipes.
The Calabash is a classic shape, made famous by the Sherlock Holmes films and is iconic for more reasons than that alone. The Calabash shape is very comfortable to hold and requires less grip making it suitable for longer smoking sessions. The bowl is thick and deep which again is aimed at smokers who enjoy a long evenings smoke. There are very few pipes that will smoke cooler and sweeter than the Calabash Churchwarden.
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.
