Rattray's Premium tobacco pipes are self described. The high graded collection seen here was made to honor and to celebrate the wood all pipe smokers love: briar. The briar used in this collection is perfect. There are no pits, flaws, scratches, sand sports, or any other sort of imperfection. In order to assure all of the smoker's attention is placed on the pipe, a standard black acrylic stem adorns the end.
