Rad Davis: Sandblasted Billiard
Product Number: 002-356-0282
While sturdy, straight, and simple in design, this robustly-proportioned handful of a Billiard is presented in unmistakably modern-artisan style when it comes to the finishing elements. A copiously ring-grained, finely-etched sandblast, a dusky contrast stain (hinting at the flame grain underneath), an amber-hued acrylic accent, and black-and-sienna brindled stem; all together a combination that would have left a man scratching his head just a few decades ago. But it works, and the modern improvements in finishing techniques, as well as the benefits of a wider variety of stains, accents, and stem materials, are displayed well here, tied together by a solid foundation.
