Pipe smoking is quite a bit more than just plain smoking. It is a refined skill and takes more time and attention to detail than smoking a cigar or cigarette. So that old cigarette ashtray just isn't going to cut it. You need ample room in an ashtray for those spent pipe cleaners and the larger ash volume produced by that hefty bowl you're smoking. Also, as a pipe smoker, you have above average class, so you need a receptacle that expresses class. Like I said, that cigarette ashtray or coffee cup just isn't going to work. We offer a selection of ashtrays that look great gracing your furniture and are large enough for the pipe smoker.
