Typically when I think of a Danish freehand I picture some flaring, flourishing shape loosely based on the bent Dublin. Here however Poul Winslow presents a freehand that's compact, sturdy, and not the least bit like a Dublin at all. In fact, if there's any classic shape I would compare it to, it would be the Volcano. The asymmetrical and paneled form is smooth in hand, though not without plenty of polished edges for added interest, and surprisingly enough this shape sits well, balancing neatly on a point along the underside's curve right under the transition.
