Any debater, politician, or deep thinker knows about the dangers of logical fallacies. Like an illusion of thought, these techniques can seem to promote certain facts while actually having very little basis in truth. One such fallacy commonly used is an argument which calls into question the purity of the subject matter. One might say “No Scotsman puts sugar on his porridge”, and when presented with evidence to the contrary, retort with “Well, no true Scotsman”.

Bear in mind the fallacies that can be used to mislead the masses with The True Scotsman. Made from quality cherry wood, this bent brandy style pipe features abstract engravings and a tapered stem. Perfect for freethinkers, debaters, and classic smokers.

Finally, a counterargument to "No True Scotsman" - The True Scotsman Engraved Bent Brandy Smoking Pipe. Perfect for emphasizing your point during spirited debates.

Use & Care

Follow these guidelines to get the most from your Shire Pipe.

Pack your chosen cut firmly, and aim for a moderate amount of airflow - not too tightly, not too losely. You can check this by taking a few test puffs before lighting.

Using a circular motion, carefully apply a flame over the entire surface of the material in the pipe bowl, drawing gently on the mouthpiece. Tamp down, and re-light.

Take your time. Puff gently - inhaling fully is not necessary.

Tap or gently scrape out the bowl immediately after use. Clean your pipe frequently for the best flavor experience.

Over time, a carbon deposit ("cake") will build up inside the bowl. Do not allow this layer to get thicker than 1/16" (2mm), as it could damage the bowl. Use the provided poker multi-tool to gently remove any excess carbon.

Use the included pipe cleaners to clear any build-up from the stem. Use isopropyl alcohol - not water - on a cotton swab to deal with particularly stubborn tar. Unless you are displaying it, store your pipe with the bowl facing down to allow any excess moisture to evaporate.
