English Estates: Ashton Brindle Billiard (XXX) (2012)

Product Number: 004-002-7028

Whenever a marque changes hands, one can always expect some changes to be made - sometimes good, sometimes bad. While Jimmy Graig has maintained Ashton's reputation for solidly classical English shaping, with a few more novel pieces thrown in here and there for variety, one change he did make was the introduction of some really properly deep sandblasting. To my tastes, at least, that was one that fell very much into the "good" category. While there were certain periods, now long gone, when Dunhill produced blasts like this, until Jimmy Craig came along finding a high-quality, traditional, sandblasted English pipe with such a craggy texture pretty much meant either spending hours digging through estate offerings, or specifically commissioning one from an independent artisan.
