Danish Estates: S. Bang Smooth Paneled Billiard with Horn (7) (9mm)
Product Number: 004-001-5512
Given that Per and Ulf are typically associated with shapes that are compact and playfully arched, or flowing and elegant, or, if straight, sturdy and rounded of contours, I guess it should come as little surprise that this but the sixth paneled S. Bang we've ever handled. I guess when they do decide to do something a little different, they aren't inclined to hold back though, given that of that six, this makes the third that's been planed from tip to tip, all in what you might call a "Sixagon" style. As in, like a six-sided equivalent of the old Foursquare. Perhaps, on occasion, Per and/or Ulf just feel a little contrary.
