If you enjoy the ubiquitous pipe tobaccos of the same name, perhaps you’d like to add this Captain Black BX17 Billiard to your rack.
Made in England by Orlik, which started as a pipe maker at the turn of the 20th Century, this handsome classic Billiard features a sandblast finish and an elegantly slender round shank and Vulcanite stem. It has seen very little prior use – both the chamber and the bite zone of the stem are in perfect condition. If it weren’t for a slight darkening of the briar inside the chamber, I’d have said this one was unsmoked.
Pipe is stamped “Captain Black” over “Made in England” and “BX17” on the smooth underside of the shank.
Pipe measures approximately 5-1/2″ (140mm) long. Bowl is 2″(50mm) tall by 1-1/2″ (38mm) wide. Chamber bore is 11/16″ (17.5mm) in diameter. Weight is a feather-light1.0oz (28g).
