The bread-and-butter classic Prince is a slim, delicate number, broad yet shallow of bowl and slender of transition and shank. Chris Askwith, however, has his own modern interpretation, as seen here. With a full and rounded bowl, and a short shank mostly covered by the mount, it presents a much firmer and more compact stummel overall, with all emphasis on length shifted to the stem. In essence it combines the relaxed and refined style of the classic, with a sturdier presence, deeper chamber, and more substantial body in hand.
