The Mizuki "943" Freehand is a wonderfully organic and flowing composition. Utilizing only "plateau" briar for the series, it seems that killer grain is the norm and this example certainly holds up. The ripples of ring grain begin directly at the heel and climb uniformly terminating in a gnarly plateau crown of a rim. Lightweight and equipped with a very comfortable stem, the Mizuki line represents a truly incredible value.
