Remember grandfather sitting by a crackling fire enjoying his smoking pipe ? News flash: the ‘Stiff Pipe’ definitely urges grandpa to update, being touted as the world’s first thermo plastic pipe cast in one piece.
“Pipe smoking is a guilty pleasure, one that isn’t necessarily good for you but brings a certain quality to life. It should be approached with a Dieter Rams-like ‘less, but better’ attitude, making sure that every drag counts”, according to Stiff.
Available in three colorways (red and murray, blue and dark navy, black and pistachio), the ‘Stiff Pipe’ provides an age-old service using 21st century technology. Plastic, is there anything it can’t do ? Unveiled recently in Tokyo, Japan, its design allows for a better draught through the pipe, making the tobacco that much better. Produced in Sweden, the ‘Stiff Pipe’ houses a briar wood chamber to stuff the tobacco in, thus retaining a bit of a traditional touch. Sound promising ! www.stiffonline.com
