Gabriele: Smooth Acorn with Bamboo (Whale)
Product Number: 002-533-0097
Nature is personified in this remarkable piece from Gabriele Dal Fiume. The Acorn is obviously influenced by nature, and they don't come more natural. With gentle curves throughout and a tight transition to a short, modestly proportioned shank, the three knuckles of bamboo offer not only additional natural cues, but excellent color contrast, along with the jet-black, vulcanite saddle mouthpiece. With a reddish, chestnut stain (if only it was called an acorn stain) the grain pops with light and dark streaks of the briar's natural disposition. At almost 5.5 inches, it has a longer shank than is usual from Gabriele; in fact, this is the first piece we've had with three knuckles rather than two. Easy in the hand, and almost weightless on the stem side, it's balance is easy, it's proportions trim, and it's comfort level has all the markings of being unrivaled.- Chuck Stanion
