Mike Sebastian Bay: Smooth Billiard with Mammoth
Product Number: 002-820-0057
The Billiard is perhaps the most classic shape of all, the progenitor of all pipes that follow. Simple and elegant, no-nonsense and efficient, it's little wonder that it remains extraordinarily popular. However, it's simplicity does not mean that it can't be improved upon, and when it is carved with the artistic and design acumen of someone like Mike Sebastian Bay, it can be a stunning presentation. As evidence, we submit this smooth Billiard with mammoth.
The curvature of the bowl is stunning, especially as it is elevated by a contrast stain that illuminates the vertical grain. The bowl reveals some good cheeking at the transition, while the shank is somewhat minimized in proportion to highlight voluptuous bowl. An elegant accent of mammoth separates the shank form the saddle stem, whose base is elevated by a single expansion ring before reducing to the flat aspect that introduces the lip button. Traditional and appealing, this is a pipe that will be fun to smoke as well as pleasing to observe.- Chuck Stanion
