American Estates: Todd Johnson Sandblasted Blowfish (Hoplite)
Product Number: 004-009-16040
Todd Johnson's no stranger to the Blowfish shape, as we've seen a plethora of them over the years. This particular rendition exhibits a tightly-controlled sense of gesture, coupled with an organic asymmetry à la Tokutomi. Todd's kept the left flank fairly subdued in this case, allowing the right to present broad fin-like ridges fore and aft. Finished in a walnut-stained sandblast, and with each crisply-defined line serving to succinctly highlight a different section of the grain's pattern, there's loads of visual and tactile interest to be found, with the shank neatly paneled and the rim displaying the concave curvature often found in Johnson's Blowfish designs.-Truett Smith
