Joe gold is a cue maker out of Illinois who started making cognoscenti pool cues in 1989. Cognoscenti cues do not have a logo or a signature on them. However they are easy to identify by the epoxy pin that he uses on them. He also uses a floating Point design and intricate silver ring work. please view the cognoscenti cues that we have worked on here in our cue repair and cue refinishing Gallery at proficient Billiards.
