Danish Estates: Kurt Balleby Smooth Bent Bulldog (9mm)
Product Number: 004-001-6515
I have been an unabashed fan of Kurt Balleby, both the man as well as his work, since my first purchase of one of his briars in 1999. While being more known for his Brandies and Apples, as you can see here, his Bulldogs are quite worthy of attention. The shape is arresting, sheer heaven in the hand and the cumberland bit with its inlay of alternating hues is as complementary to Kurt's stain as it's likely to get.
