Collectible Cues, Cases & Quality Players


Eddie Cohen is an established top rung cue maker, and cues like this show why - great designs, meticulous work and solid engineering to insure cues that hit as good as they look.  This one is of amboyna burl and ebony, and has a rich, classy look.

The burl is a rich golden amber color and the ebony is very black.  The contrast between the two woods is perfect, and is enhanced by a set of colorful veneers of orange, green and maple.

The butt sleeve has lots of Juma inlay, loosely forming a series of "windows", with large Juma diamonds, each with a center inlay of gorgeous abalone.  It's an unusual and very pretty design.  He repeats the Juma and abalone diamonds in the base of the burl points.

As usual, he engraves his logo (name) in the butt cap (elforyn).  Also, as usual, the butt cap is a little longer than most cuemakers use, reminiscent of another California favorite, Tad.

As with most of Eddie's cues, he adds very distinctive and unusual ringwork.  In this case, they're made up of a series of red, black and white checks, framed by concentric rings of elforyn, then all placed in a wider ring of ebony.

The ebony in this cue is very nice, and the two woods together present a look of pure class - rich colors in a classic design.

His points are long and sharp, and evenly constructed.  When you look closely at the work in this stick, it's easy to see why Eddie has become a pre-eminent cue builder today.  It is tight and meticulous work that is executed perfectly.

I love the design in the butt sleeve of this cue.  And the abalone provides just the right accent.

He builds this one with a flat faced joint with an elforyn sleeve over wood, with a stainless steel 3/8X10 pin.

It comes with two 13mm shafts of top quality maple, with Tomahawk ferrules and Triangle tips.  It weighs 18.8 ounces.  This is a beautiful cue that plays as good as it looks.
