Scottie Piersel: Sandblasted Pencil Shank "P" Billiard
Product Number: 002-786-0076
The preeminent Scottie shape, this sandblasted Billiard offers all the stylistic energy and careful engineering that we've grown to expect from Scottie Piersel. The shank is impossibly thin and appears fragile, but it's tough as a junkyard dog, or at least as tough as the stainless steel reinforcing it from transition to tenon (the reverse tenon is part of the steel sleeve). In this case, that transition is something quite different: The shank is offset to the left when looking down at the pipe, and is what Scottie calls her "P" shape, because from below or above the shape resembles the letter "P." It provides a little more grip for right-handers, but certainly doesn't interfere with lefties. The stem is variegated vulcanite in a sandstone hue with ribbons of red clay and brown throughout, expanding horizontally for excellent bite comfort. A smooth, concave rim offers the only smooth briar on the piece, inclined for easy filling.- Chuck Stanion
