Billiard Simoun Sandblasted Black (9mm)

Product Number: 002-010-0555

On the morning of June 17, 1859, near Santa Barbara California, a remarkably strong, dry, and very hot cyclonic wind was observed, filling the air with whipping dust and sand. According to a US government report "Calves, rabbits and cattle died on their feet. Fruit fell from trees to the ground scorched on the windward side; all vegetable gardens were ruined. A fisherman in a rowboat made it to the Goleta Sandspit with his face and arms blistered as if he had been exposed to a blast furnace." And that, in case you were wondering, is a simoun. Fortunately for us, that was also the only one ever known to have occurred in North America - around the Middle East, and the Levant in particular, they're not so lucky. All that having been said, and after taking a gander at several of these Butz-Choquin Simoun series briars, it's pretty obvious why they chose the name, on account of the sand-etched finishes which so far have consistently displayed loads of ring grain.
