Italian Estates: Baldo Baldi Smooth Billiard (B.2)
Product Number: 004-006-24424
Originally an architect, Baldo Baldi transitioned into pipemaking in the '60s before carving full-time in the '70s. Since then, he's become one of the most respected and esteemed Italian artisans, his background in architecture informing his standards for shaping and engineering. The briar he uses has been aged for 20-25 years, and here Baldi presents a classic saddle-stemmed Billiard in bold, bowl-centric Italian design. Thick insulating walls surround the chamber, and the cumberland stem matches handsomely with the stummel's auburn stain.-Truett Smith
