Ardor: Urano Cutty with Bamboo

Product Number: 002-004-1908

Italians don't do bamboo nearly as often as, say, the Danish, and they do it quite differently than either the Danish, English, or Japanese, who bond the bamboo to the shank and then fit a removable mouthpiece on the end. The Italians, rather, make a bamboo stem actually the stem - the mortise and tenon actually being placed between the bamboo and the shank. This Cutty doesn't differ from the classical Italian shank/ferrule thinking, but it does depart from its brethren in that the rhizome isn't big and clunky. Quite the contrary, they couldn't have selected a finer size for the composition.

This is only the second Cutty with bamboo that we have seen from the Roveras of Ardor. Though I suppose I shouldn't be, I find myself a bit pole-axed by amazing differences created by running with a combination of a straight approach, and finishing with a strong vertical rise to the bowl.
