Lasse Skovgaard Jorgensen is no stranger to incorporating the charms of bamboo within his work, but, when he does, we usually see it in either longer bents or in his more edgy compositions (pipes which I have dubbed as "cooling tower", "mushroom cloud", even "weasel"). To my knowledge, the Lion Grade presently in front of you is: 1. The first straight pipe from Lasse to feature bamboo on our site, and 2. the first Billiard to do the same. Personally, I find it rather dashing.
