I'll admit to having a bit of difficulty pinning this Walt Cannoy down, stylistically speaking. To my eye at least, it strikes a balance between an English classic of unusually lively flow, and a Pesaro design of unusual reserve. However one may wish to interpret it, the end result is a lovely briar that combines graceful line and form with a tasteful presentation. And of course, as expected of a Cannoy creation, fit, finish, shaping and accent-work are all executed with great precision.
