Ryan Alden: Smooth Rhodesian (Ace of Spades)
Product Number: 002-777-0034
Readily the sleekest take on the Rhodesian shape we've seen yet from Ryan Alden, this handy briar boasts a pronounced visual weight about the bowl, followed by a comparatively slender, rounded shank and saddle stem. The bowl sports a modest touch of forward cant, while the pinched transition makes for a firm, comfortable feel in hand. As one of the carver's venerated "Ace of Spades" pieces, you can expect a stellar display of flame and birdseye alike, coaxed by way of a warm, affable contrast stain. Balancing the bowl in profile, the saddle stem does well to play with some negative space at the other end, too. This is quite a sweet smoker.- Daniel Bumgardner
