The pipe that you are looking at here is a Ulf Noltensmeier “UN 02” straight grain Billiard with silver. As you can see, beautiful straight grain wraps around the bowl and is highlighted by the finish that the Bang carvers use to accentuate the best virtues of the grain and supply the pipe with dimensionality. This pipe isn’t your typical billiard. The precise hand cut curvature of the bowl and its complex angularity give it rich detail. The silver work on this piece is just incredible: it is a reflection of the Bang’s 40+ year experience in hand crafting pipes, silver adornments and a variety of wood inserts. Being stamped “UN 02” it is the second piece that Ulf carved for the US market in 2016. Per Hansen and Ulf Noltensmeier are two of the most renowned carvers working in the pipe world today and having one of these gems is a necessity for any esteemed pipe collection. Get one today! Thanks for taking the time to look.
