Musico: Sandblasted Billiard with Bamboo (Floodlight Special)
Product Number: 002-008-0299
Some shapes just work, and this is one of them. The bamboo shank is somewhat oversized for my personal preferences, yet it's exactly right in this example, and I think that's because of the abbreviated, push-style mouthpiece. A more slender length of bamboo wouldn't have been proportionally correct in conjunction with that stem, but it's wonderful here. Another fetching element is the sandblast, which reveals horizontal growth rings admirably, and is in a medium contrast texture with the high points of the blasted briar smoothed for a satisfying combination under the finger pads. The classic Billiard from Musico is also a smoking machine, in my experience, and when one of them appears in such an irresistible presentation, it's something to note.- Chuck Stanion
