Ardor: Giove Chubby Billiard

Product Number: 002-004-1863

Had the artisan loped off a tiny bit more of the bowl, this pipe could have been a Pot. Likewise, if the stem had been a half an inch shorter, I could have called it a 'nose warmer'. Stylistically, Ardor always seems to be straddling the line when it comes the concision of shapes, and for that we should be thankful because their effort is usually extremely successful, like this 'Chubby' Billiard here. Another reason to rejoice is that this is a great little hunk of briar all around, with continuous billowing clouds of birdseye covering the stummel, only separated by a consistent, descending wave of cross-grain falling from the front face rim all the way to the underbelly at the end of the shank.
