If you've ever seen Bing Crosby holding a pipe it was usually very similar in shape to this rusticated Billiard. The long stem and elongated shank produce a cooler smoker than would a standard Billiard while still remaining more handy than a full-length Churchwarden. Bing always seemed to carry a genuine smile while holding a pipe in his mouth and I'm glad Savinelli decided to honor this famous pipe connoisseur with a piece that is as genuine and affable. In a way, this pipe contributes to a legacy that still graces us in many more ways than just the bass-baritone voice that is the sound synonymous with our wintery season.
