Nate King: Sandblasted Bent Apple (236)
Product Number: 002-579-0046
Simply put, this is a killer tanblast. The undulating growth rings are so tight that I'm left scratching my head as to how Nate managed to pull out so much depth. The finish should also develop a nice patina over the years, warming and darkening slightly with age and enjoyment. As for the shape itself, it's a bold bent Apple design, natural in the hand, with plenty of room above the transition for the thumb. The gentle lift of the shank lends the piece a proud posture in profile — something accentuated by the expertly crafted, insanely patterned cumberland bit.
