Michal Novak: Smooth Bent Apple
Product Number: 002-534-0041
One of the most pleasing things about the Apple shape is how its rounded bowl lends it an inclination towards a natural feel in hand, whether rendered extra-large or extra-small, or somewhere in-between. While Michal Novak has dressed this one up with a particularly long example of one of his signature "flying edges", complete with a hair-pin curve or two, he appears to have still kept the Apple's amicable hand-feel in mind as well, adjusting the sweep and relief of said edge wear it passes by, or under, where the thumb rests when gripping this briar in either the left or right hand, while also keeping it raised where fore or ring fingers will wrap themselves, for more tactile interest.
