This is easily one of the best looking pipes I've yet seen from Bruce Weaver. And funny enough, not only is the pipe what some folks might call a 'plain old boring Billiard', it's also so diminutive in stature that it paints most Dunhill group 1 sized-pipes as semi-ogreish and practically inelegant. The shape and cut of the pipe is simply perfect, and is especially delicate on account of its rather miniature scale. And behold the grain! Tight, wispy, beautifully vertical grain makes up most of the briar, notably around the pipe's left side, where it's so dense one can quickly glimpse its perpendicular-running ring grain.
