Briar Cigar

pilgrimtexpilgrimtex Posts: 429
Just found a pipe I'm quite interested in trying. Its a Briar cigar pipe. A regular pipe in the shape of a cigar. I may even get myself a piece of briar and make one. Perhaps a new hobby? lol. Need a wood turnin lathe though to do it right. Or an old metal lathe with a 4 jaw chuck.
Because you smoke it like a cigar there should not be any moisture buildup in the bottom of the bowl like a normal pipe. Its made by Morgan Pipes. You can even carry it in your shirt pocket packed. It has a cap that fits on the end. Clever idea.

    You just pack the end? looks interesting. Reminds me of a device I saw many years ago in Europe that people were using, called a "chillum", but they had to keep it upright. I wonder if you can smoke this just like a cigar.

    Thats the only way I'd smoke it and the reason I'd smoke it. Was thinkin it has a cap but don't know if its vented to smoke with the cap on. I think I would make a cap to put on it while smoking especially if I'm riding the MC. Its $140 so it may be a bit before I'd get one. Gonna dig some more and see if I can find more info on it.

    To be able to smoke while on the bike, comfortably. Nirvana. My FLHT has a cigarette lighter, which I've used, but I don't have the fairing lowers, too much wind, and I don't smoke cigarettes anymore, but that briar pipe thing looks like it might fill the bill. I'm looking forward to the review

    A fellow biker and I smoke pipes regularly while riding. I look for light weight pipes with rather short stems and I use a pipe screen to keep the ash from blowing out. My nomad has lower fairings but not the sportster or marauder. need a flame to light though. I sometimes light or relight a pipe while moving but not recommended. Need to take both hands off the bars to do it. Need straight road with no ruts. lol

    I used to smoke a chillum, but not with tobacco.
