AKB Meerschaum: Smooth Reverse Calabash Bent Billiard with Silver (Tekin) (with Case)
Product Number: 002-574-5170
AKB Meerschaum is more so known for their picturesque figural carvings and their intricate lattice pattern work on interpretations of classic shapes, making this bent Billiard a delight to behold. While not a strictly traditional rendering, it's difficult to maintain perfect proportions when working around a reverse Calabash system, this pipe still features shaping elements of the iconic shape that make it instantly recognizable. A sharply bent stem of black acrylic meets a silver banded shank end, the high-kicking hollow shank meeting the bowl with a charming cheek, transitioning at an acute angle into the hearty, bulbous bowl. The heel is lifted slightly, its forward softness in contrast to the firmness behind it near the transition, and sitting atop it is the bowl, rising high above the shank to a rim crowned with a band of silver.-John McElheny
