Ashton: Old Church Diplomat (XXX)
Product Number: 002-006-2594
While still considered a classic shape within the English canon, the Diplomat is one of those designs you don't come across all that often. Its round-shanked sibling, the Author, while also rare, is still more prevalent, yet the Diplomat is only produced with any serious regularity by a select handful of makers and marques. Fortunately, Ashton is at the top of that list, as they produce a lovely interpretation, and with respectable consistency at that. We see it here dressed in the warm tan tones of the Old Church sandblast, paired to a softly downturned saddle stem of jet-black vulcanite.- Andrew Wike
