Of the various great shapes available in the Kinsale series, all originally designed for one of the two Sherlock Holmes series, this bent Bulldog may be the most classical of them all. The theme that seems to run through all of these is the 'mash-up' nature of the styles: an Apple bowl with a diamond shank, or a very full bent Billiard shape with the double-beading of a Rhodesian. All are attractive, but few have the timeless classicism evident in this stout, masculine bent Bulldog shape. It's presented here in Peterson's rugged rusticated finish and complemented by a tri-part brass and nickel band at the end of the shank.
