Ashton: Claret Zulu (XX)
Product Number: 002-006-2576
The Zulu shape isn't typically produced all that often by Ashton and certainly no previous rendition featured the sort of languid bend as this particular example. Nearly a demi-Churchwarden in terms of its overall length, this offering pairs a flaring, poised, and slightly canted bowl to a willowy, elegantly bent stem. The crisp texture of the Claret sandblast makes it a delight to wrap your fingers around, while the ruby-tinged stain is strikingly classy, and its light weight and gracefully downturned stem allow it to be clenched with ease. Whether you are curious about lengthier briars but don't want a full blown Churchwarden or simply appreciate classic shapes, it's hard to go wrong with this Ashton.- Jeffery Sitts
