Ashton: Claret Bent Brandy (XX)
Product Number: 002-006-2638
The bent Brandy isn't a design we frequently see Ashton produce, but the English marque has clearly demonstrated here that they can produce an excellent rendition of the classic shape. There's some additional plumpness lent to the bowl's base before subtly tapering up toward the rim while the slightly stretched transition provides room for the thumb to rest comfortably. Ashton has also made the most of the tall bowl's large surface area, treating the stummel to a crisp sandblast and dressing it in the rich, ruby tones of the Claret finish, hearkening back to the stain that was common among vintage English and French pipes back in the day.- Jeffery Sitts
