G. Penzo: Smooth Billiard with Black Palm (Flame) (B)
Product Number: 002-782-0040
The chunky proportions of this pipe are the first elements I noticed, followed quickly by the decorative Black Palm fitment, which is possibly the most beautiful accent I've ever seen on a pipe. Intricate and interesting, it beautifully demarcates the shank from the stem. And it's an unusual shank for a Billiard, muscular and beefy, tapering all the way from the bowl to the lip button. A relatively small pipe, this piece will be easy to carry, and you'll want to carry it everywhere. The light honey stain highlights the mixed grain of the piece, which is especially notable in the remarkable birdseye on the right side, though it expertly commends the mixed grain throughout the composition. At just under 5 inches, it's large enough to satisfy but small enough for extra practicality.- Chuck Stanion
