Common Types of Pipes Today

Corn Cob – Cheapest option, yet highly effective, corn cob pipes are the perfect place to start your pipe journey. Requiring no break in period, corn cob pipes are ready to go as soon as you pick one up. Great for sampling tobaccos, as you don’t have to worry about using a possibly unpleasant tobacco in your everyday pipe. Many people keep one on hand as backup, or as a travel pipe. Most are made in the USA.

Brylon – Developed in the 1960’s as a cheaper alternative to briar. A nylon and wood composite that is tough and provides a lifetime of service.

Briar – Is the most popular type of pipe made today. Pipe makers primarily use briar for two reasons. It is extremely resistant to fire and its porous nature makes for a dry, cool smoke. In many cases it tends to feature grain patterns and natural beauty. Briar is harvested from the roots of the shrub tree, grown in the soils of the Mediterranean area. This small shrub is formally referred to as Erica arborea.

Meerschaum – A soft white mineral primarily harvested in Turkey area, Meerschaum is natural product. It’s pliability allows for intricate designs and a high level of craftsmanship. It is then cured for hardening, and polished. Besides being eye-catching, meerschaum is highly functional. Its porous nature acts as a natural filter, absorbing tars and moisture. The more you smoke it, the more the meerschaum transforms from stark white to light brown colour, with flavour from the smoke improving with time.
