Scottie Piersel: Relief Contrast Pencil Shank Rhodesian with Ivorite
Product Number: 002-786-0102
A long, svelte Rhodesian from Scottie Piersel, this piece offers Scottie's signature pencil shank which, while appearing fragile, is reinforced along its entire length with stainless steel tubing. The long saddle mouthpiece offers a reverse tenon style attachment to the shank, which slips onto the stainless steel for added strength and remarkable durability. This piece is in Scottie's Relief Contrast, sandblasted in a contrast technique that provides a dual-tone finish, the texture's high points lighter than the lower and sanded smooth, adding visual interest to the tactile experience. The heel is firm and the waistline at about midpoint, presented with a ridgeline rather than beadlines. At the rim, smooth briar offers additional tactile contrast. An elegant, ivorite ring of creamy white at the end of the shank provides a bright juxtaposition against the browns of the stummel, completing an impressive presentation.- Chuck Stanion
