Claudio Cavicchi: Smooth Bent Billiard
Product Number: 002-400-1240
While definitely quite a bit shapelier than a classical English equivalent (and with the extra chamber to match), this Cavicchi bent Billiard seems nonetheless both a touch lighter and a bit more compact than is typical for Claudio's renditions of the classics. Though the shank and stem are fairly modest in length, finely tapered, and sport a good bit of bend, a lot of this, I think, is due to his going for a more feminine bowl design, it's rounded, smooth form creating a good bit of taper towards both the top and bottom. Handsomely finished, beautifully grained, and a pure, easy comfort in hand, all-around it's a winner.
