PS Studio: Smooth Billiard
Product Number: 002-458-0343
PS Studio here looks to the Danish school of pipemaking with a nosewarmer chubby Billiard displaying prominent cheeking at the transition from bowl to shank, and a gently rounded rim, though modified with an interior, geometrically chamfered ring. The Russian workshop, under the direction of Vladimir Grechukhin, manufactures high quality, repeatable shapes, often in short and stubby renditions, but not exclusively so. Even with short stature, though, they feature large bowls for a smoking experience similar to that with larger pipes. This Billiard presents lively flame grain around the bowl, which takes visual precedence over the low slung, short shank, followed by an abbreviated length of saddle stem. With artisanal details, like the chamfered tenon and fanned out smoke channel at the lip button, PS Studio provides remarkable value, and attention to detail generally found only in pipes costing considerably more.- Chuck Stanion
