S. Bang Smooth Billiard with Horn Ferrule (A) (9mm) (Unsmoked)

Product Number: 004-001-5832

When I'm confronted with the perfection that is this S. Bang Billiard, I'm reminded of the academy award winning movie Amadeus (1984), in which the Emperor Joseph II, upon hearing 'The Abduction from the Seraglio', tells Mozart there are "simply too many notes... just cut a few and it will be perfect", to which Mozart replies "I don't understand. There are just as many notes, Majesty, as are required. Neither more nor less." If you were to "Displace one note and there would be diminishment," in the words of Mozart's nemesis Salieri, "...Displace one phrase and the structure would fall."

No doubt about it, pipes like this firmly perch S.Bang on the very top tier of Danish high grades, and indeed of high grades in general. They are all hand carved by one of either masters, Per Hansen or Ulf Noltensmeier, but with the precision of a machine. No company in the world has, after all, excelled in their consistency in Apples, Rhodesian, Brandies and Eggs, and accordingly, this smooth Billiard could serve as a template for the shape - but supplemented with pure innovation and attention to detail. With features so deftly carved, an intangible sense of perfection resides in the essential nature of its shaping. Beyond resorting to the old French cliche 'je ne sais quoi', it is very difficult for me to put into words, so I'll conclude with a "Well... there it is" from his majesty, and be done with it.

-Seth Ellison
