Il Duca: Barone Sandblasted Morta Bent Bulldog (B3)
Product Number: 002-427-0291
One of Max Rimensi's most iconic shapes, this low-slung bent Bulldog seems to combine the squat form and sheer breadth of the timeless, Danish Eskimo with a more architectural style. The latter, however, doesn't work to lend the design a sense of firm geometry as you might expect, but instead allows its defining lines and ridges to complement the inherent grace of the shape itself — underlying the broad heel and subtle downward turn of the shank and stem. As for the finish, Max has always shown his brass when it comes to pairings. This example is no exception, matching up a stummel of deeply sandblasted, jet-black morta to a stem of finely patterned cumberland.
