Mastro de Paja: Smooth Bent Dublin (3A)
Product Number: 002-025-1054
An asymmetrical, eye-shaped cross-section, a profile that goes from gently flowing to boldly, forcefully rising, and loads and loads of lively, if somewhat sporadic flame grain and well-paced birdseye; this Mastro de Paja has a lot going for it. It's actually kind of curious to see a shape like this from Mastro, given that they're typically the most conservative of the Pesaro marques. There was definitely no holding back with this design when it came to running with the Pesaro emphasis on gesture, that's for sure.
