Ernie Markle: Smooth Cutty with Bamboo
Product Number: 002-490-0081
Balancing a sense of tight-knit compactness with a bulbous sense of substance up front, followed by an overall streamlined, modernist disposition, this Cutty from Ernie Markle is a pleasantly updated take on the age-old form. It wears two knuckles of pale, honey-blonde bamboo as a shank extension, guiding the eye to its gently pinched transition and softly inflated, energetically forward-inclined bowl. Ernie opted to dress this fellow in a dark smooth polish, acting as a handsome contrast to the light natural material at the shank and serving to accentuate some beautifully oriented grain. It's all gorgeously bookended by an arrow-straight saddle bit, further reinforcing its sleek style. All in all, I can't think of too many better ways of starting the new year off right than adding this one to your collection.- Daniel Bumgardner
