German Estates: Frank Axmacher Sandblasted Billiard (B) (2009) (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-005-4091
I'm always pleased to see an artisan who is adept at complex freehand shapes give attention to simpler, classic forms as well. Frank Axmacher is one of those who can create a pipe that's organic, asymmetrical, and unlike anything you've ever seen (in a good way, mind you), but knows as well that sometimes a man is just in the mood for a Billiard. More importantly, he evidently also knows that just because a shape is so much simpler doesn't mean it's a reason to to pay attention to all the details. Form, line, balance of proportions, drilling, fitting and engineering: this Axmacher is simply a fine pipe.
