Jacono: Rook Bent Dublin (E) (Checkmate)
Product Number: 002-616-0689
Tonino Jacono grades his work using chess vocabulary, the Rook series being one of his smooth finishes. And what a gorgeous piece this Rook bent Dublin is, as vivid licks of flame grain flow through its sinuous profile, terminating at the broad, slanted rim that's crowned with rugged plateau. There's plenty of palm-filling substance to be enjoyed here with the curling transition providing a remarkably comfortable spot to rest the thumb. Quite the stout and bold number, it's certainly deserving of the Italian carver's "Checkmate" designation, denoting this piece's exceptional size.-Truett Smith
