"Stacked jaw-hanger bent Brandy" isn't something you're likely to ever hear referred to as a textbook Danish shape, but I have to say that as much as this Bjorn Thurman concoction stands out, it is a very
Danish execution. The Danes like their Brandies with a low centered mass, and a long taper towards the rim - and this one's got a very serious case of both. Moving from the Danish way of doing classics to the more modern and freehand lements of the school, in the transition and shank we find a discrete asymmetry, accompanied by a single, smooth crease running down the left, like a subtle nod to Lars Ivarsson's influential teardrop shanks.
