Barling 6589 T.V.F. Sandblasted Straight Billiard Estate Briar Pipe [SOLD OUT]
Out of stock
Barling and Sons was originally founded in 1812 by Benjamin Barling and began as a family business making silver-adorned meerschaum pipes. In the early 20th century, however, the Barling family began to produce what the brand is today most famous for – expertly made briar pipes.
This particular Barling may be large and long, but it isn’t bulky or heavy. It’s surprisingly easy in the hand and might even clench for a veteran smoker. The design is a very traditional billiard, which is to be expected from a classic make such as Barling. The bowl walls are a little thicker than most traditional billiards, though, which will mean the pipe will have no problem with Virginia or aromatic mixtures, or for absent minded puffing while one takes care of the day’s tasks.
It’s also in great condition. The rim is a little darkened, but this is not particularly pronounced against the dark brown sandblast, which is also still crisp and tactile. There’s a small nick at the base of the stem, but other than that it’s pristine,with no sign of tooth marks from its prior owner.
