Sam Cui: Smooth Billiard with Boxwood
Product Number: 002-687-0021
A diminutive Billiard with long shank and Boxwood accent, this piece maintains more curvature than most Billiards, with soft curves at transition, heel and rim. The saddle mouthpiece lends an elongated aesthetic to the pipe, though the whole piece is just a little more than 4.5 inches in length. The rounded rim especially delineates this piece and characterizes its appeal. The grain orientation is traditional cross grain, with horizontal threads at fore and aft, and opulent birdseye on the sides. Sam seems to lean more toward smaller pipes, and he imbues them all with meticulous detail and fine finish. this pipe could be a good carry in a jacket pocket, but you may want to keep it in a sleeve or pouch, as it's a remarkable smoking instrument that you'll want to keep scratch free.- Chuck Stanion
