Danish Estates: Tao Smooth Billiard (9)
Product Number: 004-001-17248
While Jens "Tao" Nielsen's pipes typically exude a considerable degree of muscularity and stoutness, they tend to fall on the more compact side. This Billiard is a touch larger, and Nielsen has fashioned the proportions so well that the pictures don't adequately indicate the pipe's overall size. Stylistically, it conforms to Danish design cues — the bowl rounded and slightly tapered, with cheeking about the transition and lower bowl. For accenting structure, Tao paneled the shank, further defining the transition and lending the profile a sturdy rigidity. The grain is commendable too, and the chestnut stain matches the semi-translucent, amber hues of the acrylic stem.-Truett Smith
