Roughly 5.5” x 2.0”, with a gentle cupping of the heel, as well as a subtle preponderance of mass posted in the bottom third of the bowl, Scott executes a perfect juxtaposition between the shank and the same. Flawless, not only in the sense of a seamless transition, but in allowing just enough under travel to the former to create the subtlest of cheeking. Subtle is one of many “make or break” aspects at this level. No cheeking at all, on a Danish inspired Billiard, would take a bit of the all-critical rounding out of play. Too much travel/overly-prominent cheeks, and an odd sense of parody comes into play. Take a peek at the understated reduction of the shank, as it flows to meet the striking saddle bit, and, while you’re at it, what do think about the stain and grain? It’s great to see that you're grinning as well.
