Ashton: Pebble Grain Bent Billiard with Silver Army Mount (XXX)
Product Number: 002-006-2588
While I've been privileged to handle and describe several Ashton interpretations of shape chart standards and other time-honored designs, this bent Billiard may be the most quintessentially English take on the classic shape I've ever seen from workshop. It calls to mind the iconic silhouette of Dunhill's beloved "02" bent Billiard and is simply a pleasing pipe all around. The graceful bend of the cumberland mouthpiece should allow for an easy clench in the jaw while the upright bowl is wonderfully pleasing in hand, offering plenty of crisp texture courtesy of the Pebble Grain sandblast. A sterling silver army mount offers some brilliant contrast against the stummel's dark hues and enables this pipe to be broken down easily at any time, even while it's still hot for convenient on-the-go storage or a quick cleaning. It's charming, versatile, and just downright classic.- Jeffery Sitts
