J. Alan: Sandblasted Mushroom with Boxwood (1223)
Product Number: 002-376-0216
When I asked Shane if he had any information on this Mushroom design, his answer was that he believed Jeff was "just having some fun." That seems reasonable. This is definitely a playful shape, reminding me of some of the more eccentric briars I've seen from a few Italian makers in basic concept, but with such control and style that it strikes me as part of the Grechukhin-meets-Japanese-school. However much fun Jeff may have been having with the design, he was not messing around when it came to getting the most ring grain out of it.
