Ardor: Urano Billiard with Bamboo
Product Number: 002-004-2522
Though you don't see them quite as often as you would in, say, the Danish or Japanese schools, the Italians do produce some bamboo-infused shapes every now and then. As you might expect though, they do things a little differently. Where Japanese and Danish artisans normally bond the bamboo extension to the shank and fit a removable mouthpiece to the end, here the Roveras do the opposite: actually fashioning the mortise and tenon between the bamboo and the shank — making the bamboo actually part of the stem. This deep-chambered, slender Billiard's a fine example of the technique, finished in a dark, subtly warm stain and a thick, craggy rustication, with two solid knuckles of bamboo fitted to the base of an ocean blue acrylic stem.- Andrew Wike
