Grechukhin: Smooth Rhodesian
Product Number: 002-497-0043
Even when an artisan's style and inspirations differ considerably from any of their contemporaries, there are still going to be certain shapes, signature shapes, which drive that point home in a particularly strong manner. For Vladimir Grechukhin, his Rhodesian is one of them. It is, quite simply, such a bold shape, with its swept-back bevel, jutting, canted bead-line, and broad, smoothly powerful frame, that there's no mistaking it. I have to imagine that this unorthodox arrangement took quite a while to perfect, but perfect it Vladimir did, as he not only manages to make it it turn out with a natural, balanced (albeit also forward-rushing) profile, but also to do it all while nailing the grain orientation too.
