Ashton: Claret Billiard (XX)
Product Number: 002-006-2575
Ashton always delivers with their interpretations of shape chart standards, and they've always favored classic English shapes and rendered them in a variety of sizes and finishes. This particular offering fits in perfectly with that style and is one of the trimmest, lightest Ashton Billiards I've ever come across. That said, there's still a good bit of chamber tucked away inside, ensuring you'll have a respectably long smoke. The poised, upright bowl seamlessly transitions to the gradually tapering shank and stem arrangement out back, further accentuating the piece's classically inclined shaping cues. Fitting to its traditional form, it's presented here in the deep ruby hues of the Claret's sandblast, nodding to those vintage red-stained pipes of yesteryear while bringing out an impressive mix of blasted birdseye and vertically oriented waves of rippling grain.- Jeffery Sitts
