Ashton: Claret Rhodesian with Silver (X)
Product Number: 002-006-2615
Asthon's "X" size is of Group 1 proportions, making this Rhodesian a petite, compact pocket pipe, commended further by a comfortable bend to assist in clenching hands free. Shape-wise, it's a classic rendition of the form, featuring a rounded heel and subtle ridgeline just below the tapered rim. It's dressed here in the Claret finish — showcasing a crimson-stained sandblast and vibrant, broad accent of sterling silver. Said silver is of particular note here: When selecting these pipes from Jimmy Craig, he mentioned how he was dissatisfied with some the silver previously used. To find a suitable replacement, Craig melted down old silverware and dishware, resulting in some of the most vivid silver accents we've ever witnessed.-Truett Smith
