hi all,

think its been a couple of years since i posted anything new here ... but if you're gonna come back, may as well be with a bang !

barry and i worked on these designs quite a few years ago and i think i had posted some "in progress" shots when i had gone to visit him ( again this was a few years ago ) ... as well as the story of that Brazilian Rosewood piece that was used in the cue...

when they were done, i requested barry to hang on to them .. thinking i'd pick them up myself but unfortunately health issues got in the way and today, Little Kenny brought them to hong kong by hand - can't ever thank him enough for that !! he is truly a one-of-a-kind in the "big heart" department ....

Barry is and always be, one of the finest people i have ever had the pleasure to call a friend - the fact that he is a master at his craft is a bonus :)

thank you barry for the cues and more importantly for letting me be a part of your life ...

enjoy the cues my friends ...

I've had the good fortune of seeing this pair in flesh when I was at Barry's and they are simply spectacular!
The segmented wrap Ebony cue is to me the nicest Szam to date. I never thought these pair would make it to photograph...thanks so much for sharing.

thanks but i have been selling them steadily - have about 10 more to sell and i think i will only hold on to about 10 that have sentimental value for me ... the szams, the maserati BB and the full ivory hercek - maybe a few others but i'd like the others to be played with and not just kept in a case ...

Congratulations! Those are truly unique and beyond outstanding. Barry created two more masterpieces. I have seen many of your cues and should let you order for me....you have great taste. Finally, your courier is a fantastic guy...but you know that!

You have "la creme de la creme", please enjoy good health.

All the best,
Phil

The segmented wrap cue is one of the most unique cues I've seen from Barry. A while back he mentioned new looks were in the works and now I know what he meant.. Both very special cues. Congrats Kam and Barry

What a pair!!

Both cues are fantastic but with the Ebony one Barry stepped out of the box and hit a home run. Major congrats.
