Randy Wiley: Galleon Bent Billiard (44)
Product Number: 002-093-2452
Randy Wiley is a progenitor, popular from the 1970s onward, and an influential part of the American pipecarving tradition. This Galleon Billiard is representative of his work, with a big, full bowl and somewhat reduced shank proportions leading to the easy bend of the mouthpiece. Randy doesn't sandblast, instead opting for unusually craggy rustication techniques, among them the Galleon, which presents a horizontal style of broken striations. His alluring, earthy stain, reminiscent of fertile, chocolatey-brown garden soil, is punctuated by a lighter band of smooth briar wrapping into an undercarriage nomenclature panel where the shank meets the stem. There's lots of tobacco chamber in this pipe for those whose lifestyles sometimes require long smokes without refilling.- Chuck Stanion
