Tao: Smooth Rhodesian with Silver
Product Number: 002-748-0020
Despite his seemingly strong penchant for the Bulldog shape, Tao Nielsen's body of work is fairly lacking for the form's kindred, the Rhodesian. When he does present us with one, it tends to look something like this: acutely compact, gracefully pronounced of gesture, and sinuously elegant. They tend to forego his characteristic sense of stockiness and muscularity in favor of this lively profile, presenting a feel in hand that can best be described as a "handy substance." This one's finished in a gorgeous, vibrant stain, perhaps a touch darker than his lighter blonde finish, and paired to a jet-black vulcanite stem by way of a broad silver accent band. There's plenty of lively flame at play, not to mention some lovely birdseye at the rim. Excellent work.- Daniel Bumgardner
