American Estates: J. Alan Sandblasted Billiard with Bamboo (1222) (2016) (Unsmoked)

Product Number: 004-009-15783

They don't come much nicer than this. J. Alan is among the best carvers in the world, and he's especially adept at rendering classic shapes with modernist modification, such as this Billiard. The sandblast is spectacular, its growth rings consistent and horizontal, and deeply textured. Matching that rugged texture is the bamboo shank with four solid knuckles, straight and perfectly sized, leading to the flat saddle stem. The rim is smooth, lightly stained, and curved inward toward the tobacco chamber, while the heel is firm and the bowl tapers gently to the rim. Best of all, it's unsmoked, but I daresay it won't stay that way.
