A strange a combination as it may sound like, my first impression of this Mustran design was two parts Japanese freehand, one part Michal Novak's flying, sweeping "edges". As far-flung as those two styles may be, whatever inspiration Daniel here really took, he put to good use, resulting in a distinctive and well-knit composition. While the form of this briar is very substantial, it's the lines that play the strongest hand, and they roll, rise, turn and dive smoothly and effortlessly, even where a sudden hairpin maneuver is called for. On top of that, they set up a complex arrangement of furrows, panels and facets that play well to the grain, and present it beautifully.
