AKB Meerschaum: Carved Bent Apple (with Case)
Product Number: 002-574-0025
Though a handy number of modest size, this AKB bent Apple sports a fully under-cut latticework finish, something more typically seen on larger meerschaums (where I would imagine the more broadly curved surface makes the task easier). Aside from making for depth of texture and a certain sense of greater elegance, undercut latticework also tends to provide both greater contrast as the meerschaum takes color, as well as make for a cooler feel in hand, the latter on account of there being mostly just air between the bowl's outer surface and the walls of the chamber itself.
