Massimo and Andrea have a thing for these elongated, forward-stretching variations of classic shapes. Most often I've seen them apply it to a Rhodesian, but here they went with the Dublin instead, and a beauty of a Dublin at that. Flame grain, birdseye? Plentiful and gorgeous. And the deep, rich contrast finish and bright sterling silver do both the artful shape and the choice briar great justice.
