Misc. Estates: Chris Asteriou Sandblasted Billiard (46/15) (2015) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-008-8663
Chris Asteriou is a talented Greek pipe artisan whose creative range runs the gamut from classic shape-chart renditions to organic, Danish-inspired designs. This traditional straight Billiard is a fine example of the former, striking a pose with an upright bowl and a balanced shank and stem.
The stummel wears a crisp black sandblast that perfectly accentuates fine ring grain, with tight striations bedecking the flanks and blasted birdseye fore and aft. With plenty for fingertips to explore. The composition maintains a distinguished air with its tapered vulcanite stem, offering a sleek aesthetic combined with rugged utilitarianism.-Gabriel Bass
