Ashton: Claret Rhodesian (X)
Product Number: 002-006-2616
While the Rhodesian, much like its cousin the bent Bulldog, can be at times quite muscular in form, here Ashton takes a far more elegant approach, pairing the petite, rather squat bowl with the long, arcing curve of the round shank and saddle stem — creating a noticeable slimming effect in profile. This rendition forgoes the form's characteristic beadlines, placing a subtle ridgeline underneath the high-set, softly tapered rim and sits just above the brief transition. Size-wise, it's around a Group 1 or 2, but the sandblasted finish offers plenty of crisp texture for the fingers to enjoy. Perfect for fans of English briars and compact, easily pocketable pipes. Not to mention, it looks exceptionally gorgeous dressed in the Claret's ruby-red stain.- Andrew Wike
