Caminetto: Smooth Red Rhodesian (05) (AR)
Product Number: 002-011-0185
For roughly four decades, the Rhodesian wasn't a shape I would have associated with Caminetto - I believe that I might have run across two. Then came the Ascorti reboot of the venerable mark, and with that evolution came a host of sleek forms which could readily adapt to different stylistic interpretations - and the Rhodesian was at the front of the new pack. This Rhodesian features an execution that's a bit different than its other brethren I have seen: the flattened bowl is wider across the bow and the shank/stem more truncated. While this dark, understated stain isn't the most flattering to a grain in the industry, take a look at the cross on the rim.
