AKB Meerschaum: Smooth Reverse Calabash Bent Billiard with Silver (Tekin) (with Case)
Product Number: 002-574-5177
Featuring reverse Calabash engineering through a secondary chamber in the shank and a push-mounted stem that can be removed at any time, this deeply bent Billiard from AKB Meerschaum presents a singular profile. From the shank face to the heel runs a sweeping curve framed by dual ridgelines, not only exuding a firmness which contrasts the shape's overall softness, but creating an angular spur of sorts that focuses the attention to the lower fore of the bowl, the natural termination point of the eye's travel from the starting point of the curve. The bowl is fairly straight, dispossessed of any curve until just before the rim, where it tapers slightly, and the shank end is adorned with a band of silver, reinforcing the mount of the stem and creating a tiered effect with the shank and stem ends, allowing for the relatively trim saddle stem to look more natural.-John McElheny
