The warm matte finish is sleek in appearance, and in the hand. The oxidization-proof acrylic stem is tastefully accented by a slim nickle band, and while equipped to accept 6mm filters, also includes an adapter so the pipe can be smoked without a filter. The Rubino line represents a great value in an Italian-made briar. Available in a variety of classic shapes, we are presented here with an unpretentious Billiard for those who prefer a no-nonsense smoking machine.
