To the Roveras of Ardor, a classic shape is merely a good starting point, and then they really go to work. We have this titled as a bent: technically correct, but the feel is both straight and modern. A full 40% of the bowl lies above the first line of the shape's signature double-bead, which further enhances this briar's sense of modernity. Just slammmin'-great work from one of the best Italian carving firms in the game.
