Sandblasted Strawberry Wood Billiard with Polymerized Organics

Product Number: 002-630-0011

This is about as conventional of a briar is you are likely to see from Doctor's pipes, which should tell you something about Doctor's pipes. While the ratios and proportions of this Billiard are representative of the next wave shaping aesthetic, similarities to any contender stops right there.

Crafted from strawberry wood (in the same family as the heath, just as heat resistant, but slightly lighter and more absorbent), the wild grain inherent within the material is brought to three-dimensional life, not by etching, but through a blasting process/mechanism of Roman Kovalev's own design. His process "liquifies" the air-sand mixture, and the exacting pressure is set below the threshold where harder wood begins to strip, but above the point needed to effect the soft. The accessorizing material (again) is of Doc's invention. Purchasing the necessary equipment, Kovalev began creating polymers, finally arriving at a material which incorporates native grasses, moss, and nuts as polarizing agents. Incredibly hard to cut, and capable of withstanding temps up to 500C, Doc went the extra distance to provide you with a unique material which should last several lifetimes. Macro-shape aside, this is not your workaday new school saddle Billiard. Then again, if you were seeking the everyday briar, you wouldn't be perusing the work of Roman Kovalev.
