Shape definition is a bit hard to pin down on this Former design, being as that it's Acorn-like in the positioning of mass, but so sublimely smooth that and Egg shape is the first thing to come to mind regardless. The soft, gentle, yet plenty curvaceous combination of form and line, having been rendered by a master artisan, unsurprisingly results in an absolutely easy and delicious feel in hand - truly the sort of briar you just do not want to put down. Fortunately to that end the chamber is generous of depth, promising good excuse to keep a hold on it for a good long while. Mellow and voluptuous as the design may be, the final composition does posses plenty of liveliness, courtesy of a wealth of gorgeous grain brought out by a rich and vibrant contrast stain and beautiful gloss finish.
