Ashton: Ebony Diplomat with Silver (XXX)
Product Number: 002-006-2656
Essentially an Author with an oval shank, the Diplomat is a classic shape, but one that isn't regularly produced in the modern pipemaking era. Thankfully Ashton is keeping the traditional shape alive, producing this spot-on rendition. The bowl is plump and broad, providing a comfortable in-hand feel when wrapped around the thumb and forefinger while the thick shank continues the bowl's robustness. Such a timeless shape is well-suited to the English workshop's Ebony finish, offering a sandblasted iteration of the classy dress pipe motif. The glossy finish is paired to a bright wedding band of sterling silver — the accoutrement providing a dose of flash against the rest of the composition's jet-black color palette.- Jeffery Sitts
