Italian Estates: Ardor Urano Canadian (DR) (NAPSC 2012) (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-006-9438
Ardor is a company best known for their more conspicuous Freehands, as well as their enormous "Giant" series. I can safely say this Canadian definitely possess an impressive stature, as it is very long and quite substantial in hand, but not a bit of the former, because if you sized it down to standard scale (perhaps a bit larger, as this is Italian after all), what would remain is nothing less than a beautifully crafted neoclassical Canadian. Ardor does not sacrifice any of the timeless shape's inherent masculine qualities here, but instead tread respectfully. Their usual quirky aesthetic is applied casually through a pebbly rustication, then thoroughly soaked in a dark red-earth stain, with a smooth and bare rim left to accent.
