What is the difference between Briar wood and Cherry wood?

Cherry wood and Briar are very similar woods in both color and density.

Cherry wood is probably best known for it qualities in providing a great smoke for smoking meats and was originally regarded as a material of choice for crafting smoking pipes.

Briar quickly took its place once it was discovered. Briar wood grows in burls or big balls underground as a root wood for the Heath tree. It grows in the Mediterranean forests and takes a minimum 15 years to develop to a size large enough to be harvested. Because it is a root wood it absorbs moisture better then most woods as that is what its purpose is in nature.

You will not find much difference, if any between a Briar pipe and a Cherry wood pipe when you first start smoking them. The difference develops slightly over time. As your pipe is smoked the Briar wood soaks up the moisture from the tobacco and flavors of the pipe slightly better then the Cherry wood. Cherry wood also absorbs moisture and flavors of the tobacco but not to quite the same extent. The more the wood absorbs these flavors the better your pipe will taste and mature.

What does Pre-Carbonized mean?

We offer an all natural, food safe honey-carbon treatment that is applied to the bowl's interior wall to protect your pipe while it goes through its cake building period. During the initial smoke, the sugars in the honey caramelize with the carbon powder which produces an instant protective cake. 

Pre-Carb comes standard on Ash wood and  Cherry wood pipes as they are less dense than Briar wood and could be more subjective to burning in the beginning.
