American Estates: J. Alan Smooth Oval Shank Billiard (1248) (2016)
Product Number: 004-009-15679
Even before I inspected the stamp, I knew instantly that this was the work of Jeff Gracik of J. Alan pipes. It's something of a combination of the carver's soft, streamlined approach to classic shapes, along with his excellent stem work and ability to coax the best grain from a given block. It's a Danish-inspired style but with a more upright and straight bowl, its height emphasized by the low orientation of the oval shank — perfect for highlighting the stunning grain around the bowl.-Truett Smith
