PS Studio: Sandblasted Billiard
Product Number: 002-458-0334
The Billiard may well represent basic simplicity realized in briar, adhering as it does to design determined by the foundational requirements of the combustion of pipe tobacco. As to smoking tool, though, there is plenty of room for interpretation and modification, with the subtlest of elements contributing dramatically to the overall disposition of a piece. The newest Billiard design from PS Studio, this piece diverges from the short, stout muscularity most often associated with Vladimir Grechukhin's vision. Here it's presented in a long and slender interpretation, its shank modest in diameter with a low transition, contributing to the singular aspect of the bowl, which maintains soft curvature in an Egg-like aspect, maintaining the Russian school's tendency to promote bowl-centric designs. The blast is medium-deep, and is part of Grechukhin's contribution to a more moderately priced pipe category that retains the creativity and refined smoking characteristics of much higher priced pipes.- Chuck Stanion
