Tom Eltang: Sandblasted Pencil Shank Billiard with Bamboo

Product Number: 002-299-1240

A long, trim, straight Billiard from none other than Danish pipe wizard Tom Eltang, this incredible piece stretches to nearly six inches in length but weighs only 17 grams. It's a work of ultra-light art, proving what someone with both 45 years and countless pipes under his belt can pull off when he devotes his life to the craft. The shape is pure Eltang, with a slightly forward-canted Billiard bowl displaying the svelte taper and cheeking I expect, paired to an arrow-straight, pencil-thin shank and stem.

It's wearing a gorgeous tanblast, perfectly accentuating blasted birdseye on both flanks, with the rim left smooth and inflated to amplify the supple aesthetic. The transition is abbreviated and shaped to match the organic undulations of a bamboo shank extension, from which a quick taper of hand-shaped vulcanite mouthpiece effortlessly flows. For anyone looking for a classy, lightweight Danish Billiard that punches far above its weight in mass-to-beauty ratio, you can't beat this one.
