Neil Hammond has a VERY lightly used cue for sale. He and I will be at the SBE on Saturday, if anyone would like to see this cue in person, or pick it up that day. Otherwise, please feel free to contact me here.

Neil has been making cues for about 10 years now. He has gained quite a lot of attention over the past few years, for his eye catching designs and very clean work. You will not see a lot of Hammond cues around, because Neil only makes between 5 and 10 per year. He is a true craftsman, and ensures that every detail is perfect, and to his liking, before it leaves his shop. Please search AZ Billiards for 'Hammond Custom Cues', or 'Neil Hammond', to better familiarize yourself with some of his work.

4 point Ebony into Curly Narra. Nickel stitch rings. Leather wrap. Veneers are: Gray, Light Blue, Medium Blue, separated by a thin layer of Black, to improve contrast.

Cue comes with 1 shaft. Tip diameter is 12.5 mm. Butt weighs 15.6 ounces, shaft weighs 3.5 ounces, for a total weight of 19.1 ounces. Neil would be happy to adjust the taper and weight for whoever buys the cue. Don't let the joint fool you; it is only a stainless steel collar, so the feel of the cue is similar to a wood to wood joint. It has a stainless steel radial pin.

Please forgive my poor photo taking ability. I included a photo of the leather wrap, in an effort to show the perfect seam. Notice, it is barely visible.

Asking price is $900
