A Billiard is a must for artisans to have attempted, and made well, if they wish to reach a larger audience. Even Hiroyuki Tokutomi, one of the top pipe carvers on the planet known for freehand designs, will knock out a classic once in a while. People like them. They smoke well. The added detail to make the bottom of this pipe flat, which allows the pipe to sit, will be appreciated the first time you set the piece down.
