6 pt. Black Boar ESO cue
We call this an ESO cue which stands for Every So Often.
ESO a cue comes our way that has all the qualities that make for a special cue. This Boar is one of those cues.
*Black Boars in general are noted to be collectible and sought after.
*The 6 pointers are the rarest with only 60 – 90 ever hand crafted.
*Tony Scianella describes the 6 pointers as “Treasured Cues.”
*This 6 pointer is one of a small percentage that Tony made with the time consuming L channel hardwood recut points. Each tall point in this cue is made of 3 individual deep knifed points; Ebony, Tulip, and Ebony wood, making it, in Tony’s words, ‘a 12 pointed cue.’
*Due to the time and labor in making these points, they were only made on a small percentage of the early 6 pointers. To this day tony will not make these points.
When you look at the pictures of this cue, and understand it’s history, you will appreciate what we mean by a cue like this comes by every so often.
