I've said this before and I'll say it again: Rad Davis is really one of the few guys who seem to get around to making this old English classic anymore. Which is just too bad, because when it's done right a Zulu (or Yachtsman, as I prefer it) is just a sleek, sporty little thing, and a good looking jaw-hanger. And Rad Davis does the the shape right, as far as I'm concerned. He doesn't really take too many (if any) liberties with the traditional form, leaning instead on the intrinsic beauty of the reliable standard design. Of course, he's got it rather suped up here in a to-die-for blast that shows off both incredible ring and fan grain, in addition to a lovely cumberland mouthpiece that pairs quite well the the jet black stained briar.
