Honore de Balzac is a very famous French author and playwright, and is also the inspiration behind this Butz-Choquin pipe. It seems that the best way to pay tribute to an author as esteemed as Balzac was to make his pipe a churchwarden, which is perfect for easily holding while writing. This pipe has been given a smooth finish, cherry toned stain, and a lovely bent vulcanite stem.
