Bruce Weaver: Sandblasted Billiard
Product Number: 002-531-0063
Tall as a stack yet quite balanced and trim in profile, here Bruce Weaver presents us with a charming straight Billiard. There's a gentle taper to the bowl, eventually rounding out around its wider, rounded base in an almost Brandy-like manner. In turn, its bold heel lends the piece just an added touch of character for a composition that's as handsome as it is elegant.
As for the finish, Bruce chose to lend this number his unique sandblasting technique — striping away the soft portions of the briar, leaving the growth rings untouched, to maintain the shape's graceful curves and symmetry. For the stain, he opted for a light one, highlighting the briar's natural aesthetic with waves of rings undulating up from the base and a fair bit of plateau along the rim. To accent, he topped it off with a slender, jet-black saddle stem that promises a comfortable clench in the jaw. Bruce's delightful combination of minimalist shaping and natural treatment of the briar make this a pipe you won't want to miss.
