Misc. Estates: Michael Novak Smooth Freehand (025) (2013)
Product Number: 004-008-2289
This may well be one of the edgiest of the Michal Novak designs to cross my desk so far, by which I mean one sporting some of the most numerous, and most dramatic examples of his signature flying edges. I guess this makes sense, though, as it's also one the most substantial briars I've seen from Michal as well, being a great, big, heavy-shanked sitter. As you can see, though, that mass, rather than being rendered as stolid or static, is used to add loads of powerful momentum to a design defined from bit to rim by a wild, rising, wave-like flow.
