AKB Meerschaum: Carved Floral Bent Billiard (with Case)
Product Number: 002-574-4279
This plump rendition of the bent Billiard from AKB showcases the rich, ornately detailed finishes that can be rendered in meerschaum, proving why it's such an alluring canvas for pipe making. The floral and vegetative carvings covering the stummel with their luscious intricacies, providing not only a visually arresting design, but a physically tactile one as well, leaving plenty of luscious texture that can be felt in hand. Adding a splash of color, the orange and cream saddle stem makes a subtle arc off the shank, offsetting some of the bowl's rigid posture in profile. Over time and after plenty of flavor-neutral smoking sessions, this will patinate in browns, tans, and pinks for added character.--Davin Hylton
