This Kyriazanos marriage of oval and sphere exudes a sense of warmth and comfort long before you pick it up. While not an utterly natural (read: virgin) finish, Michalis's light stain/polish creates the dual benefits of allowing the beauty of the briar to shine through, while adding a pleasing sense of depth. Michail's choice of employing a less often seen dark-tenné ebonite bit was a solid one, complementing the hues of the body in fine fashion, and the shape imparts a sense of easy modernism. All of this, as I mentioned earlier, before you place this canted Egg in your paw. Once in the hand, it just gets better.
