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 Mediterranian 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 a Carbon Powder Treatment that is applied to the bowl's interior wall to protect your pipe while it goes through it's cake building period . This process is strictly up to the customer to request as it ensures that you will not damage your pipe from smoking it to hot and burning the Briar. The down side to Pre-Carb is that blocks the Briar wood from soaking in the tobacco resin which ultimately limits how well your pipe can mature. We advise that you request a precarb only if you are new to pipe smoking and advise against pre-carbonizing Ceard Series pipes.
Pre-Carb comes standard on Renaissance (Ash wood) and Cherry wood pipes as they are less dense woods that could otherwise scorch easily.

How much is the Pre-Carb?
There is no extra charge for Pre-Carbonized bowls. You will be given the option to add pre-carb when you checkout.
