I bought my first Black Boar from Tony in 2002. Through word of mouth Iíd heard that Tonyís shop was worth seeing and his cues hit different than any other. On my first visit to the shop I was at once, overwhelmed and impressed by the operation. Tonyís shop was massive and elaborate compared to other cue makers Iíd visited.
I was sold before I walked out the door. As a player, and cue buyer, above all, I was struck by Tonyís perception of a cue as an instrument vs. just a piece of wood. His passion was obvious by his exacting attention to even the minutest details coupled with meticulous procedure.
Before he finished my first cue I ordered a second, and itís been that way ever since. In just 8 years I have accumulated over 80 Black Boar Cues. My collection includes basic early models of Tony's works of engineering genius (No point or 4 point cues) as well as more exquisite and ornate later models (6 point or 8 point cues). My collection is entirely Black Boar Cues. My admiration for Tonyís work prohibits me for settling for anything but the best.
I am aggressively searching for more 6 point cues to add to my collection. Featured in these pages are photos of about 15 of my cues, soon we will be adding more. I am proud to share my collection with one and all. It is my hope that by sharing, the world recognizes Black Boar Cues as truly, the finest billiards cues in the world!
