Briar Works produces machine-made pipes with an extra level of briar selection and expert drilling. An Oom Paul is as bent a tobacco pipe as can be made. The carvers in Columbia, TN begin with a fine piece of briar featuring birds' eye grain that covers the bowl. The smooth, dark stained shank rises even with the billiard-shaped bowl. A translucent yellow stem falls at nearly a 90-degree angle to the shank. The drilling on shank and stem allows a pipe cleaner to pass easily through the length of the pipe. If you like bent pipe, do yourself a favor and add this to your collection.
