This handsome, oil cured bulldog from Bill Ashton Taylor is about as nice as they come. The shape is imbued with the character that only hand shaping can produce and the blast is both pleasing and highly tactile. The patina on this Old Church has begun to warm from being smoked and the drilling is spot-on. Like all of Bill's pipes, this one is capped with the world famous Ashtonite stem. The material is great, it gives like vulcanite, without the oxidizing properties of the same.
