Chris Asteriou: Sandblasted Oval Shank Billiard with Curly Birch (102/17)
Product Number: 002-540-0084
The oval shank on this Billiard from Chris Asteriou provides a broad silhouette from above and below, separated from the mouthpiece by a fitment of stunningly grained curly birch. The sandblast is excellent, with concentric growth rings and vertical grain. The inside rim is chamfered and smooth, while the rest of the rim is sandblasted. The wide, flat mouthpiece promises comfort. Easy and light in the hand, with plenty of grain for endless examination, the beefy width of the shank provides a stout and solid feel. It's a fascinating rendition of the Billiard and sure to keep you interested and satisfied for years to come.- Chuck Stanion
