Askwith: Sandblasted Morta Cavalier
Product Number: 002-499-0274
Eccentricity by way of classical framework is Chris Askwith's bread and butter, and there is arguably no shape more eccentrically classical than the Cavalier. It's surprising we haven't seen one from Chris before, making this fully-functional rendition quite welcome. At its core, it's quite a traditional interpretation, evoking the look of a striking bent Billiard, only continuing the line initiated at the shank through to the heel's end cap. It's rendered from jet-black, lightweight morta, bookended by a stem and cap of rich, dark cumberland, altogether making for a lightweight and practical, yet appropriately playful rendition of the old form. A fetching rendition revealing the structured makeup of morta in all its geometric glory, and in a classic, old world shape that unifies both classic and modernist approaches to the craft.- Chuck Stanion
