Scott Thile: Smooth Bulldog (OP2) (348)

Product Number: 002-615-0035

Extra-plump shanks paired to classic bowls have become a thing among American carvers, but typically that's something you'll see in round-shanked designs, and particularly in Billiard-family ones. Scott, however, has done something less common, and experimented with applying that formula to, of all things, the Bulldog, a shape traditionally defined by a sharp style composed wholly of planes, bevels, and edges. More importantly he's made it work, lending the shanks and transitions not only extra width and extra depth, but a just right, subtle degree of convexity to their taper — the very element that makes them appear plump, attractively softer, rather than merely just as thicker versions of the same old hard-edged style.
