AKB Meerschaum: Rusticated Bent Billiard (Tekin) (with Case)
Product Number: 002-574-2646
Rustication isn't a finish you typically see used on many meerschaum pipes, yet the technique works quite well, adding a bit of craggy texture to an otherwise smooth medium. In this piece from Tekin Gok, that texture combines with a deep, red-wine finish to dress a bent Billiard of substantial chamber — echoing the look of the ruby-stained pipes of yesteryear. Such a finish coordinates perfectly with the shimmering ruby-hued acrylic stem, its deep bend promoting a comfortable balance when clenched. The smooth rim is quite unique here as well. It's oriented at a slanted angle and features four scalloped areas along its surface.- Andrew Wike
