Alexander Hasty: Sandblasted Billiard with Ox Horn Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-876-0014
This straight Billiard by Alexander Hasty shows his unique take on pipe design, which is to say it is a muscular American shape with clear Danish influence. In more pocket-friendly dimensions, it offers a proportionally tall, tapered bowl with a well rounded heel and cheeking at the transition. The shank is robustly round and topped by an accent of pale horn, well rounded to mirror the bowl's inflated rim.
Hasty's skill in the blasting cabinet is showcased here with a low-profile finish that brings out a wealth of blasted birdseye on the flanks, while the rim is left smooth and supple — another oft-seen aspect of Danish artisan pipes. A ruby stain gives a luxurious aesthetic that contrasts nicely the accent the shank end. A lithe saddle stem of hand-cut vulcanite stretches out back, reducing quickly from an expansion ring to race toward a hand-funneled lip button. Light in hand and stimulating to the fingertips, this pipe will make an excellent addition to any collection.- Joel Balyeat
