The '98' shape is a serious mainstay in other Stanwell markets, but isn't available as a standard shape in the United States. Frankly, I think that's silly because it is just a lovely example of the Lovat shape. This one has some very nice flame grain, and so it's nice to see it in a series that involves some special treatment. Namely, it's been fitted with a sterling silver band.
