Tao: Smooth Natural Billiard with Horn Stem Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-748-0042
With a natural finish that ably highlights the immaculate nature of this briar and its remarkable vertical grain, this Billiard by Jens "Tao" Nielsen presents his distinctive style, maintaining a short length and muscular proportions. The bowl takes visual precedence and is well rounded, with a firm heel and delicate cheeking, while the cylindrical shank leads to a short, tapered stem of genuine horn. This pipe is just over four inches in length, while the bowl is almost two inches tall, emphasizing the muscular aspect of the rendition. A single band of contrasting black offers a visual separation of the stem and shank, and carries Tao's logo of his signature across the top. Otherwise, the palette is very light in nature, the blonde aspect of the stummel harmonizing with the soft shade of the mouthpiece. It promises a comfortable and practical smoke in a shape that is traditional but modified to the exacting standards of Tao.- Chuck Stanion
