Ser Jacopo: Walnut Billiard (L1)
Product Number: 002-171-1769
Though we've carried many straight Billiards by Ser Jacopo, I've only managed to find one other that followed a theme like this. This is a big pipe (certainly large enough for one or two "Maxima" stampings, though it bears none), yet it's relative proportions remain quite trim, and it pairs a straightforward, sturdy square shank to a high-rimmed, softly-contoured bowl, with just a subtle touch of cant. The result is a briar gentle in hand, yet a rock-solid sitter, and a chamber deeper than many a Stack.
As a bonus, while supplies last, we're tossing in a free broad-bladed plug-cutter (we just happened to have a batch of them on hand) with each Ser Jacopo pipe that comes up on a new update.
