An unusual hybrid of neoclassical Dublin, Hawkbill and/or Zulu, and... a flower(?), the Picta Magritte "06" is one of the odder designs of the whole Picta series - which is really saying something. Nonetheless, it is a sound one as well, offering an easy feel in hand, plenty of depth to the chamber, and good, stout walls as well. Throw in the Magritte line's signature dove-patterned sterling silver, and, in this case, some really choice flame grain, and you've got a fine briar by any measure.
