    I'm always drawn to the classic Billiard & Canadian shaped pipes. So when it came to deciding on my first BST, it was a no brainer. "Build me a large Billiard". When the pipe arrived I marveled at the glass smooth finish. The grain is amazing, the balance is pefect. I had read about the Sasquatch pipes having an "open draw", but what you soon find out is that the draw is perfectly engineered with the size of the pipe, effortless & silent. The pipe is large without being too large. Probably a 6 or ODA on the Dunhill scale. Still light enough to clench and a good 90 min. of bliss should you fill her all the way up. Not a shelf pipe, this is a regular rotation workhorse and fast becoming my favorite pipe.
    Big thanks Todd.

    It's a squat billiard---like a cross between a billiard and small pot. Really nice execution of a very popular shape back in the day.

    A bunch of guys are waiting to hear back Stonewall. I have been super delinquent on pipes for about 2 months. John was gonna throw me in the gator pit if I didn't get that billiard cut a few weeks ago.

    No need for a gator threat, just a PM with a gentlemanly "eh em"? will do.
