Bill Shalosky: Smooth Billiard (654) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-720-0215
A robust, full-bodied Billiard, this offering exemplifies Bill Shalosky's distinctive mix of Danish shaping cues reinterpreted through the American Industrial approach to pipe making. While the proportions of this piece are noticeably beefed up throughout, everything is so seamlessly well-balanced that its heartiness cannot truly be experienced until the pipe is held in hand. The bold bowl houses a roomy, respectably deep chamber within and is appropriately surrounded by thick insulating walls, providing plenty of substance between the smoker and the burning leaf inside. The bowl's muscularity has been expertly matched by the thick, round shank before terminating at the tapered mouthpiece. Dressed in a rich walnut finish, the stummel boasts broad swathes of impeccable birdseye around the bowl, intersected by tight cross grain, making this pipe a tour de force in subtle excellence.-Gabriel Bass
