Scottie Piersel: Sandblasted Bing's Billiard with Silver
Product Number: 002-786-0077
Scottie Piersel's signature, extra-long, pencil shanked style takes the form of the iconic Bing's Billiard in this piece. In essence, it's a Liverpool with an elongated stem, yet in the hands of Scottie, that length is stretched all the more to near Churchwarden size, but with an arrow-straight sleekness throughout. Here, the American artisan has fitted the shank with a generous band of sterling silver, adding a strong sense of elegant flash. The accent also does well to separate the chocolate hues of the stummel from those of the cumberland stem, breaking up the complementary color palette. One would think such a slender stretch of shank would be delicate and would risk breaking; however, like all of her pencil-shanked pieces, Scottie has reinforced the briar with steel all the way through, giving way to a reverse tenon arrangement on this piece. The shape fits easily into Scottie's signature aesthetic, while also catering to those who love the look of classic designs.-Truett Smith
