French Estates: Comoy's Riband (182)
Product Number: 004-003-4776
Even in their arrow-straight shapes, Comoy's always had a way with full, rounded contours that created an especially smooth yet firm style. If anything, that style is more evident in this modern-day rendition of the "182" shape, which sports more rimward taper than the version from decades ago, and a shank that appears somewhat shorter and stouter in style. Very nice grain pattern on this Riband series example, and the matte finish's smoothness in hand plays well to the strengths of the shaping.- Kaz Walters
