Winslow: Smooth Bent Billiard (A)
Product Number: 002-036-2121
While many Danish pipe makers fashion either classic shapes or wildly eccentric Freehands, Poul Winslow has found a balance between those seemingly paradoxical styles. His pipes often retain a traditional core, a shape chart standard informing the piece's foundation, but Poul manages to imbue them with a sense of flourishing playfulness that artfully blends traditionalism with the avant-garde. This "A" grade bent Billiard is one Winslow's higher-tiered offerings, showcasing his more traditional side but remaining readily recognizable as his work. It's a robust interpretation, the bowl's heartiness continuing into the transition and throughout the shank before meeting the softly downturned mouthpiece. The grain orientation on this piece is stellar, with tight tendrils of vertical grain wrapping around the bowl's flanks before meeting the craggy plateau that graces the rim. For an added accenting touch, the inner rim is chamfered and polished smooth, sloping inward toward the tobacco chamber.- Jeffery Sitts
