Musico: Smooth Billiard with Bamboo (Club) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-008-0019
Back in World War II, with briar's scarcity, pipe makers like Dunhill began using bamboo for pipe shanks, an idea that was not only practical for the time, but also quite fashionable, as the material had been fashioned into canes and the like for some time already. This two-knuckled Billiard is a testament to that ingenuity, and to an idea that stuck around long after, though most often seen on briars associated with the most skilled artisans. With its neatly sized bowl (just a little smaller than a Dunhill Group 3) operating in perfect rhythm with the aforementioned knuckles, not to mention its tapered-tenon stem arrangement, this light and handy smoker is like to be your next go-to companion.
