    I'm diggin this pipe . I imagine it filled w/ Ogden Walnut smoking super cool . I've never tried their pipes or their maple inserts . I figure a Canadian made by Canadians has gotta be pretty damn good ! I'd like to pull the trigger on this one but I dont spend that kind of money on a pipes anymore . Whoever likes Canadian pipes would probably dig this pipe

    I hear ya . 100 bucks is some money . If I didnt mind spending 100 bucks on a pipe [ which I do ] I'd bag this one for some reason .... it just looks classic / perfect . How many Canadians do ya got ?

    Me likey too. I've got two Canadains, one is my beloved first pipe (some Italian-made second/basket pipe with a pipe shop' name stamped/engraved in it) and the other is a Pete 2012 St. Paddy Day pipe. I think two Canadians is enough for me.

    Well, in reality I think it's a Canadian built by Italians for Canadians :D

    Brigham sent production to Italy a while ago, if I'm not mistaken. I have been able to acquire several estate Brighams that were made in Canada, but I think it was in the early 90s that they made the switch.

    Italians are talented people ... but maybe not as talented as the French , whom to their credit , were able to teach the Canadians to play Hockey .. which is a feat about as big as the aqueducts :) . Though Ottawa didnt pull it off the other day

    I dont know much about Bringhams except that I like the way many of them look .. and the maple insert option is cool . They seem to have a good eye for shapes ... I'd like to have one at some point . Btw , I have a 4300 psi Dewalt pressure washer and I noticed that the engine/pump was made in Italy . I figured it was American .... but we dont make much any more

    I have mostly estate Brighams (6 of them, including my Grandfather's Sportsman), but the seventh is a new one, so made in Italy, and it is a darn nice smoker. The rock maple inserts are usually quite damp at the end of a smoke, which indicates to me that they work. I usually clean it out a bit with a cleaner, rinse it with hot water and then leave it out to dry overnight. I've read that you can get a ton of smokes out of a single insert by keeping it clean and fresh. Sure, it adds an extra step to the cleaning process, but worth it for me so far.

    LOl ! I'm not sure but imo ... a Canadian needs to be pretty long . The lumbermans seem to be somewhat longer than a regular pipe w/ a billiard shaped bowl or beefy in heft . I doubt thats accurate but just something I've noticed w/ the way lumberman get listed

    Heck , I would but I have to buy an air conditioner if the truth be known . Downstairs is fine all year but upstairs it's 80 degrees . My bedroom has a small unit but the rest of upstairs is hot . Dear God man ... it's almost 90 outside . My boys are downstairs in 71 degrees ... must be nice .
