American Estates: Nate King Sandblasted Volcano (212) (2014)
Product Number: 004-009-8598
Shape-wise, this isn't a dramatic departure from the only other Nate King standard Volcano we've seen; the taper is little more pronounced, the shank is a bit longer and more strongly curved, and the concavity of the forward line is noticeably deeper. The palette, however, is another matter. While the other example went with the tried-and-true contrast stain plus boxwood and black stem route, this one presents a deep, defined sandblast, a brown finish with slight olive/yellow undertones, and a black-and-olive cumberland stem. In that it's a much closer match to the novel Volcano/Cavalier hybrid Nate would make later, in 2015.
