From the article Through the Lens of History: French: The working language in the West, by Jean Delisle
“The voyageurs paddled 15 to 18 hours a day while remaining in good spirits. Every four or five kilometres, they took a break to relax and smoke a pipe. The distance covered between stops ended up being called a pipe. Incidentally, voyageurs always had a pipe with them and are generally depicted with one.”
The bowl, made from African blackwood, shares the same durability and moisture resistant qualities of the bamboo stem. This pipe can be dropped in the snow or on wet ground and not be damaged, the stem is fitted with water proof epoxy resin, with an extra long tenon on the inside of the stem joint. The bamboo stem is roasted and fitted in a way to reduce cracking in extreme conditions.
With the pipe you will recieve a fitted reclaimed leather pouch made right here in the D.M. Pipes workshop.
