If you like your Pokers big, this is one to watch out for. A massive, towering hunk of briar, this Ashton features a wide, deep chamber, extra-stout walls, thick shank, and tapered vulcanite stem. It's presented here in a dark sandblast that shows off this enormous briar's likewise enormous amount of ring grain. Almost the size of my fist, it promises an extra-long smoke and a quality one at that.
