Simply put, Chris Morgan's Bones Pipes are one of the very best values 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!
