Gabriele: Sandblasted Bent Brandy with Boxwood (Turtle)

Product Number: 002-533-0024

Well, this is a striking one. Part of the reason why I say that is because while many lend their virgin finish briars a honey-hue by rubbing them down thoroughly with beeswax, Gabriele here has left his in it's very, very fair natural complexion. Of course, the briar will darken, taking on color and character, with each smoke - but then that's a large part of the appeal of virgin finishes, the other being that since a complete lack of staining means even the smallest flaw will stand out to attention, they generally only make up a small fraction of any artisan's output. The second striking feature is the design itself, an exceptionally broad handful of a voluptuous Brandy design, rather like a smoothly-formed Danish Tomato, but with a slightly higher, delicately tapered rim.
