English Estates: BBB Special Smooth Bent Billiard (734) (K)
Product Number: 004-002-6479
I was just showing our new employee, Brandon, how a saddle stem can appear to be so thin, but is actually as thick as many others. The trick is fooling the eye by filing the top and bottom (just behind the saddle) curving to almost touch each other. Doing this leaves a very thin line on the side of the stem which makes it appear very thin. BBB did a wonderful job with this piece, and it has the look of of a pipe that is quite old.
