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.Metal condensing filter, 9mm absorbent or no filter!? You decide!
The Butz Choquin Cadre Noir is a new breakthrough in pipe design. It is well known that Rustic pipes burn cooler due to the extra surface area in contact with the cooler air around it. Butz Choquin have now gone one step further and carved Fins into the side. This idea is based on the design of a car radiator to optimize the cooling of the pipe. It also increases grip and makes for comfortable feel in the hand. And then in true Butz Choquin style they have spent a lot of time in the finishing studio. We can only guess how many finishes were applied to this design until they came up with the creamy coffee contrasting with a darkpolish in the recess.
The Butz Choquin Nocturne 1789 is a half bent apple shaped bowl, which fits the hand very well. The apple shape has a slightly thicker wall towards the base, which helps prevent the pipe overheating where it matters the most. It has an average bore, that isnt as deep as the other pipes in the range, which helps remove even more weight from an already light pipe.
Multi purpose filter: The Cadre Noir now come with Butz Choquins new multi purpose filter. It is a confusing choice to make when choosing a new pipe. Do you want a metal condensing filter a 9mm absorbant filter or an un-restricted full on smoke. Now you have the choice and can sample the different effects of each.
