Musico: Smooth Zulu (Floodlight)
Product Number: 002-008-0279
The Zulu, or Yachtsman, can vary in the stem's degree of bend and the bowl's degree of forward cant, sometimes making for quite the "S-ing" profile. The renditions from Massimo Musico takes a more reserved approach — the stem almost imperceptibly bent and the bowl canted forward at an obvious but still minimal angle compared to other iterations. What isn't reserved, however, are the proportions of this piece: Though the length caters to nosewarmer standards, the bowl is over two inches tall and stands proud in relation to the rather slender shank-and-stem combination. Such a design choice was well considered by Massimo, with the extra height of the bowl better showcasing the briar's sweeping grain pattern in a warm, auburn stain.-Truett Smith
