'''Roy Brigham''', after serving an apprenticeship under an Austrian pipesmith, started his own pipe repair shop in Toronto, in 1906. By 1918 the business had grown to include five other craftsmen and had developed a reputation across Canada for the high quality of workmanship. After repairing many different brands of pipes over the years, Roy noted certain recurring complaints by pipe smokers, the most common referred to as "tongue bite". Tongue bite is a burning sensation on the smoker's tongue, previously thought to be due to the heat of the smoke (i.e. a "hot smoking pipe").

The problem of tongue bite intrigued him, and he decided to make overcoming it a future goal.
