Becker: Sandblasted Rhodesian with Horn (Four Clubs)
Product Number: 002-007-0664
This isn't quite a pencil shank, but it certainly does come close. Granted the Becker standard for a pencil shank is something very slim indeed, so that isn't saying much. The neat trick though is that Federico has still made the shank here look every bit as delicate, pairing it up with a bowl that's well rounded at the waist-line, to the point of overhanging a fairly long but well defined transition. Combine this with the familiar Becker point at the heel, and the result is a Rhodesian that, bowl-wise, packs about as much substance as your rather robust classic rendition, while sporting a profile that looks downright light and elegant.
