Castello: Trademark Billiard (KKKK)
Product Number: 002-386-1193
There's straight grain, there's cross-grain, and there is what I call, for lack of a better term, "transverse cross-grain". And this Trademark straight Billiard just happens to be a good example of the latter-most; a bowl with birdseye up front and out back, with bands of flame grain along the flanks. And in this case, since the piece of briar chosen clearly had a good bit of curve to to its pattern, it nonetheless still retains a "straight grain" style display along the underside and shank - i.e. more birdseye below and above, and bands of flame that follow down along the shank's flanks.
