German Estates: Joura Smooth Bent Billiard (Infinity A)
Product Number: 004-005-4957
A beautifully supple piece from Karlheinz Joura, this bent Billiard showcases the German carver's artful approach to the classics — blending stout proportions with full, plump curves, and a graceful, sinuous S-curve in profile. The transition is well-defined and somewhat pinched, creating protruding, bulbous cheeks to either flank — which, in turn, makes for a very natural, comfortable feel in hand. While all that shaping is indeed impressive, Karlheinz's affinity for grain orientation really shows here as well, the briar sporting tight, angel-hair tendrils of grain bursting up from the base. Beautiful piece, and still in great condition.- Andrew Wike
