American Estates: Rolando Negoita Smooth Belge (2009)
Product Number: 004-009-5129
You can never be sure what you'll see next by Rolando Negoita, as he produces designs ranging from complex freehand artistry to the very engineering-centric "Conductas" with their fat tubular shaping and cooling-chamber shanks. Nonetheless, he does seem to have a particular liking for the Belge and Cutty family as we've seen several interpretations of from him. This example makes for a fine representation of his approach to this classic shape with its swift, graceful profile, gracile proportions and extra-long shank - all executed with perfect smoothness and balance.
