Tonni Nielsen: Smooth Snail with Bone (Viking)
Product Number: 002-192-0230
Along with clean shaping (whether it's in the form of a Danish classic or a very organic freehand like this), great grain comes pretty much standard with a Tonni Nielsen briar. Nonetheless, there are still those pieces that are simply a cut above the rest - or as is the case with this Viking grade, just downright ridiculous. This briar sports what I'd not so much call "flame grain" as "FLAME GRAIN!!" Multiple exclamation points, some have said, are a sign of madness, but in cases like this I think a little temporary off-kilterness is more than justified.
