Smooth Bent Bulldog (OP2) (280)

Product Number: 002-615-0010

Winston Churchill once quipped “The nose of the Bulldog has been slanted backwards so that he can breathe without letting go”. While the late statesman was making an observation on the tenacity of the UK’s national animal (not just “national dog”, mind you), once you have eliminated all of the non-shared connections between the pipe shape and its namesake (drooling, snoring, etc.) what you have left is a comforting, confident masculinity as well as (come on, admit it) character and charm. This Opus Two Scott Thile bent Bulldog not only displays the requisite character and charm, it boasts an execution and compositional balance that would put it in the running for “Best in Class”

Scott’s Bulldogs were mighty fine back in his 10/2013 debut and they sold like sunblock at an “Albinos at the Beach” motorcycle rally. I really wasn’t expecting “mighty fine” to show the few micro-adjustments needed to become “There you have it!” so quickly (we’re talking five months, fer Pete’s sake), but darned if he didn’t do it. Here he didn’t just do it, but created a smooth iteration with scads of vibrant straight and flame grain covering the bowl (about a 200/160 split), as well as a bountiful birdseye blanketing the rim and top of the shank. Woof!
