DESIGN PRINCIPLES

The Brigham system was developed in response to a common complaint of pipe smokers - tongue bite. Eliminating this burning sensation created by the tars and acids of the burning tobacco (especially in wet and aromatic blends) became a consuming passion of ours. We found the perfect taste-neutral and effective material in natural, untreated Rock Maple.

Each filter is made by hollowing out the inside diameter of a 3.5” Rock Maple dowel and pressure-fitting a special metal cap to its end which helps the filter fit snugly inside the pipe while making removal simple. The manufacturing process of the filter uses no chemicals or adhesives to guarantee a taste-neutral system.

By design, the Brigham system extends into the stem, providing an extra inch of wood through which the smoke passes. Consider that in most other pipes, smoke spends half of its time passing along a plastic or rubber channel which can add negative flavour to the smoke while providing no benefit of its own.

This combination of reduced exposure to plastic and rubber, drastic reduction in tongue bite, elimination of gurgle and flow-back as well as the ease of use has made Brigham Canada’s pipe of choice for generations.

WHEN TO CHANGE YOUR FILTER

As part of the after-smoke cleaning process, when the pipe has cooled fully, remove the filter and inspect it. If it is a very dark brown colour, it is time for cleaning or replacing. Being diligent will ensure all the benefits of our system and a dry, clean taste!

Remember that our filters are very effective sponges and have a finite capacity. Once a filter has become saturated with moisture and impurities, its effects are eliminated and the benefits lost. Additionally, as the filter is used beyond saturation, it expands in size to compromise the way it fits into the pipe. It is possible for a filter to become very firmly wedged in the tenon if left too long. This is not irreparable, but can lead to poor pipe performance and ineffective cleaning.

The easiest approach is to replace your filter once it becomes dark brown (almost black) with a new one. We recommend alternating between 2 filters, allowing one to dry while the other is used

Our filters can be cleaned with water and left to dry before re-using. This is effective in a pinch, however, our studies reveal that this method reduces the filter’s ability to operate effectively after a few repeats.

The impurities are safely held there until the filter is removed for cleaning. When a filter becomes dark brown, it can no longer filter effectively, and should be replaced. Factors such as the relative wetness of the pipe tobacco, amount of moisture originating from the smoker's mouth and frequency of use can change the length of time it takes to reach saturation.
