As you know, I'm always looking for pipes to carry that exemplify the fine line where the best possible quality meets the best possible value. When I was recently given the gift of a Morgan Bones pipe (thanks Parson Rick), I knew I'd found a winner! After Chris saw my presentation video on YouTube of my Bent Acorn, we entered discussions...and I'm proud to now offer Morgan Bones Pipes here at The Pipe Nook!
Simply put, Chris Morgan's Bones Pipes are the best value in the briar pipe market today. These are very utilitarian pipes that are guaranteed to provide one thing and one thing only: a good smoke. In the real estate market, a potential diamond in the rough house is said to have "good bones." That mindset can be applied to these pipes. The briar pieces are factory seconds from various lines which didn't make the cut for various reasons such as pits or small voids that become visible during the shaping process. But Chris Morgan redeems these pieces by having them lightly sandblasted, waxed, and fitted with an acrylic stem. This in conjunction with the decision to leave them unstained allows for a very affordable pipe that, while not perfect, may just become one of the best smokers in your collection!
If the Bones pipes do well, and if there's enough interest from my Pipe Nook customers in the Blackjack series, I may add those in the days to come. In the meantime, grab yourself a Bones pipe and experience the joy of watching it color like a seasoned meerschaum as it becomes a faithful companion during your times of quiet contemplation.
