The Vex, a shape that I dreamed up a handful of years ago, continues to wow me. The Vex is all about flow starting with a two-groove spiral above morphing into a steep three groove spiral below. The organic bulge offers a perfect gripping point adding to the utility of the piece.
The material, new to Ming, is going to be a welcome addition. With the strong vertical striations it calls out for the complex shapes that I so much enjoy. The resulting synthesis of shape and pattern demanded a Dynasty grade.
Vex in Riptide will come nestled in a Neil Flancbaum created buckskin leather pouch.
