Radice: Rind Pure Billiard Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-030-2787
While the pale briar of a fresh virgin-finish pipe is certainly nice to look at, the real charm of these sorts of pipes is how they darken. Without stain or gloss coat, no other briar developes a patina with time and enjoyment quite like one of these. The catch is, for the pipemaker, that they are also far less forgiving of natural flaws; even the smallest tends to stand out, and so makers like the Radices do have to be more selective as to which briars can even go with this type of finish.- Andrew Wike
