Misc. Estates: Shalom Partially Rusticated Bent Billiard

Product Number: 004-008-1954

In the legendary tales, songs and tribal dances that pipe men participate in while sitting around the roaring campfires at pipe shows, the Village elders have imparted that, at one time, The Alpha and Shalom pipe were created under the same roof when the former still had a factory in Israel. When Alpha closed its Israel facilities and moved to the US, the Shalom became no more. I must confess that I never believed this legend, my tribal nickname isn't "He Who Would Doubt The Presence Of Gravity" for nothing, yet here one is (and it's a dandy!). Perhaps I need to reevaluate my opinion about the legend of how Sixten Ivarsson tricked the Raven, and brought the sun back to the earth.
