Radice: Rind Pure Billiard with Faux Bamboo
Product Number: 002-030-2803
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 develops 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. Add to it all the excellent bamboo-styled briar carving, and you have a pipe to keep your interest for decades.- Andrew Wike
