This is the classic straight Billiard, only rendered by Italians, in a very Italian way. The robust bowl features thick chamber walls leaving a wide rim, all matched in proportion by the stout shank and stem design. I don't think one would ever experience worry about burnouts with a bowl this robust, only the pleasing feel of a soft warmth while enjoying the smoldering leaf. The Billiard has a smooth matte finish and sports a well cut vulcanite stem.
