Il Duca: Barone Sandblasted Billiard with Horn (B1)
Product Number: 002-427-0236
Accents are often used to contrast and complement a briar's particular color palette, but in this case I suspect that Max Rimensi may have had playing a similar hand with texture in mind as well. Yes, the particularly dark horn does contrast the unusual calico contrast stain quite well, but the first thing that stood out to my eye was the way its polished, perfectly cylindrical form, very controlled in style, also worked in combination with the briar's deep, crisp, and strongly organic ring-grain pattern.
