Bulldog pipes: This is one of the original briar shapes and owes its name simply to its look: rugged and likely to be smoked by outdoorsmen. A true classic shape, this pipe is most recognized by the line which rings the cap of the bowl. The Bulldog shape is distinguished by its diamond-shaped stem and usually a couple of lines cut around the widest part of the bowl. Bulldogs are fitted with either taper or saddle bits. The Bulldog shape was very popular at the turn of the century and included short models called Chubbies or Golfer's pipes.
