English Estates: James Upshall Sandblasted Bent Billiard (5) (9mm) (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-002-7741
Though the (very) impressive ring grain displayed on this briar's right flank doesn't quite hold up on the left, I still have to say I'm taken with this bent Billiard. The shape is simply pleasing, with a robustly muscular, tight-knit approach to the shank, transition, and lower bowl. The shaping appears to go lighter in style once you hit the upward taper, though the walls are kept quite thick all the way up to the rim, lending this stocky smoker a thoroughly solid look and feel even when viewed from above.
