Ser Jacopo: Smooth Walnut Paneled Bent Billiard (L1) (Maxima)
Product Number: 002-171-2000
While the cross-cut grain of this Ser Jacopo isn't symmetrical, it certaily shows off very impressive birdseye, and all the better (and all the more of it) thanks to the towering, broad, and handsomely paneled bowl design. It may only be stamped as a single "Maxima", but that bowl, and it's depth of chamber, are more on par with that of a briar bearing two or three.
