BBB Medina 18470 Smooth Bent Apple Estate Briar Pipe, Unsmoked

Out of stock


‘BBB’ originally stood for ‘Blumfeld’s Best Briars’, so named after Louis Blumfeld after he took over the historic Alfred Frankenau Company in 1856. Later, the pipes came to be known as ‘Britain’s Best Briars’. Though the name might have changed, the quality of the pipes did not – they really were fantastic pipes, made in the classic style of the English-French shape chart. Like GBD, Dunhill, and Barling’s, BBB are pipes with a rich history behind them, proudly holding the title of “the oldest trade mark in the [pipe] industry.”

The Medina is one of the older lines offered by BBB. This iteration is dressed in a striking ruby red stain, one that is neatly complemented by its jet-black vulcanite stem. The shape is a simple bent apple. Sometimes you can’t beat the classics.

The pipe also happens to be completely unsmoked, with a factory-original bowl coating to help ease in its first smokes. It also comes with its original box and sleeve.
