Il Duca: Smooth Apple (C)
Product Number: 002-427-0385
Very rarely do we see a classic, saddle-stemmed straight Apple from Max Rimensi of Il Duca. Most times the Italian carver presents a sleek taper from transition to button, but sometimes he'll add a flourishing flare at the shank end, adding a tier-like stem between shank and stem. Either way, it makes this particular offering a standout number in the most traditional sense. Because of the classic shaping, elongated sleekness, and arrow straight disposition, the focus is drawn immediately to the color palette Max has implemented. The rounded but not especially bulbous bowl displays a strong English sense of form and is dressed in a matte, ruby stain, reminiscent of the iconic Bruyere finish. The stem continues this red-tinged motif, exhibiting the signature, rusty tones of natural cumberland to complement.-Truett Smith
