English Estates: Willmer Extra Grain Paneled Bent Billiard (A) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-002-33846
A rather structural take on the bent Billiard, this pipe from Willmer features a high-kicking shank and stem combination that balance a paneled bowl at the fore. The transition is wide enough to welcome a digit and smoothly defines start of the shank and stem's easy taper to the button. The bowl sits atop a nicely rounded heel and takes on a gentle taper to the rim from its low-set waistline, offering a comfortable feel in hand and added curvature to balance the panels' firmness. Dressed in a warm mahogany stain and paired to a complimentary stem of vibrantly colored acrylic, this pipe showcases some handsome grain, with an impressive display of birdseye across the bowl.-John McElheny
