Frank Axmacher: Sandblasted Billiard

Product Number: 002-815-0009

While there's certainly an impressive nature to a cohesive Freehand design, I'm always charmed by a well-executed classic. Straight and streamlined, this Billiard from Frank Axmacher uses the lines of its shank and stem to draw all of the visual focus forward, with a steady taper from bit to transition, giving the bowl center stage. Softly rounded, with just a slight taper from base to rim, the bulb of the bowl seems almost perched at the tip of the shank. Its place as a focal point isn't wasted, either — finished in a crisp sandblast, the briar's grain is highlighted and defined with some low-profile texture, the rim left smooth for a hint of the original surface. It's an elegant take on a traditional design, and one which has been executed with aplomb.
