Il Duca Smooth Bent Egg (D)

Product Number: 004-006-10449

This broad, ultra-smooth bent Egg design is clearly Danish-inspired, though that doesn't stop Massimiliano Rimensi from injecting plenty of his own style into things as well. Most obvious is the dark, rich, yet subtle contrast finish, which beautifully presents a briar that bears a wealth of birdseye fore and aft, as well as some quite fair flame grain running along either flank. The accent is something new to me, though — Max appears to have originally shaped a long shank, then lopped it in half, turned the material he removed 90 degrees, re-attached it, then finished the final shaping to create smooth, continuous contours with a lighter bengal stain for contrast. The result is novel, as the accent continues the form perfectly, and the breadth of birdseye and flame grain patterns are the same, despite having been rotated out of sync, altogether resulting in an unusual combination of complement and contrast.
