Chris Asteriou: Sandblasted Billiard

Product Number: 002-540-0031

While Chris's work is stellar all-around, it was delicate numbers like this that most immediately grabbed pipemdom's attention when his briars began being introduced to the wider world. It's easy to see why - it takes a lot of skill, and more than a little daring to set out shaping something so utterly slender. One tiny deviation in drilling, one unexpected flaw turning up in the briar, and it's back to square one. There's a reason so few artisans will go so far into gracile proportions, combined with a briar shank of any significant length. Nonetheless, for Asteriou these have become regulars in any batch of pipes he sends our way.
