Is this true? I just saw a facebook ad from P&C that shows a Peterson 2018 pipe of the year and the ad says the bowl material is "brylon"... is that something that is new to them or have they been doing that? I remember brylon as being briar dust formed to make bowls in cheaper pipes. Am I right? I'm wondering if a lot of companies are doing that now if Peterson really is. Anyone know?

A commenter on facebook says P&C made the graphic and it is wrong. I hope so. I also hope P&C takes it off of facebook if it's wrong.

I can't imagine Peterson opting to work with such an inferior material as Brylon. Must be a type in the ad (fingers crossed that I'm right!).

You remember properly, Simple Man. Brylon is a cheap amalgam of briar dust and resin, much like particle board is made from sawdust and glue. I have one Medico made from Brylon I found near the beginning of my piping career. Fun to keep in the tackle box or hunting kit as the amterial is nigh indestructible but it doesn't make for a good smoke - the material heats up uncomfortably during use (clenchers only need apply!) and of course Brylon doesn't absorb moisture, so the smoke tends to bite regardless of blend.

I added the picture of the ad to the original post.

Just one minor clarification. True briar burl in no way, shape, or form absorbs moisture either. It's the cake that's absorbent.

So P&C deleted the post but never corrected their error. Strange.
