Martelo: Smooth Billiard with Mammoth
Product Number: 002-694-0030
When it comes to modern renditions of the classics, Gustavo Cunha is simply killing the game. His unique way of melding traditional English and French base forms with smooth, elegant Danish lines and stunning finishes consistently yields gorgeous pieces fit for any collector's rotation — be it one centered around classics or more avant-garde designs. Take this straight Billiard, for example; it adheres closely to the old-school model only with a softer style of heel and transition, as well as a much leaner shank and stem configuration. Size wise, Gustavo's kept it modest as well, around Group 3 in scale — coming in at just 35 grams, with an overall length of five and a half inches. He's added the finishes touches through a pale bone accent and a warm, smoldering contrast stain for the briar — highlighting a mesmerizing cross-cut grain pattern.- Andrew Wike
