French Estates: Champion Deluxe Rusticated Billiard Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-003-6048
Quite the muscular take on the straight Billiard, this piece from Champion pairs a thick shank to a sleekly tapering stem for a look that emphasizes the presence of the stummel. A rounded heel supports the proud bowl up front, its walls growing to over two inches tall and possessed of a touch of curve at the fore. Dressed in a craggy, darkly-stained rustication that leaves us with bands of briar stacked atop one another, this pipe displays a rugged, pastoral aesthetic that makes it a tempting workhorse piece.-John McElheny
