Sam Adebayo: Sandblasted Billiard with Bakelite
Product Number: 002-750-0023
The reddish-hued Bakelite mouthpiece makes for a pleasing contrast with the deep black of the stummel on this pipe from Sam Adabayo. It's a Billiard with Italian influences, as seen in the narrower bowl tapering to the rim, making it seem tall in relation to the rest of the piece. The taper of the shank, which is continued onto the stem, is subtle and understated as well, providing consistency of style in conjunction with the bowl. The sandblast is craggy and offers lots of tactile feedback for the fingers. With growth rings surrounding the bowl, and centered at the heel, it's a remarkable piece in a relatively small package and ready to be enjoyed for a few generations to come.- Chuck Stanion
