What is a bruyere pipe?
The article in the link I posted above talks about WWII causing manufacturers to turn to alternative woods. I would hazard a guess there were some less than scrupulous manufacturers who were not honest about their pipes which lead to the use by others of both the terms genuine and guaranteed.yes.. if you see something referred to as a "Bruyere Type Finish" it's glossy red.
If it's a pipe that says GENUINE BRUYERE they are just meaning it's real briar. with all these stamps there must have been some fake briar back in the day lol
You mean like incorrectly calling the chamber the bowl when the bowl of a pipe is the section of the stummel that the chamber is drilled into?This could get downright pedantic, maybe we can raise the level of the forum, in the eyes of the educated.
