Il Duca: Smooth Billiard with Horn (C)
Product Number: 002-427-0478
A semi-gloss, contrast finish elevates the grain of this lengthy Billiard from Max Rimensi of Il Duca. Proportionally, the bowl is somewhat slender and rises from the tight transition at a dramatic forward cant. With a muscular, round shank that visually proffers an impression that the bowl is smaller than it truly is, it offers a flat rim with a spread of birdseye across its surface, and the forward heel lifts as it joins the tapering of the bowl, contributing to the implied forward momentum of the composition. A fitment of horn graces the end of the shank, and with a matching accent of horn at the base of the stem, provides a wide visual contrast of color and grain, while the saddle stem stretches to the crisp lip button and completes a captivating smoking instrument.- Chuck Stanion
