Nate King: Sandblasted Bent Apple (181)
Product Number: 002-579-0031
Nate King's shaping style, in my opinion, is one of the most eclectic around. From his modern "Gear Punk" and "Steam Punk" designs to his more classic Billiard shapes, it's hard to pin down a particular school of influence. This particular bent Apple seems to lean towards the Danes with its plump bowl, sweeping transition, and flared shank. Hey, I'm not complaining: it's one lovely shape execution. As far as finishes go, it's about as fine of a sandblast you'll find paired with a white-swirled bakelite accent and a vibrant contrast stain to highlight all those spectacular rings.
