Ashton: Quaint Cherrywood (XXX)
Product Number: 002-006-2782
This Ashton Cherrywood immediately calls to mind Dunhill's iconic "45" shape, more commonly referred to as the "Don." It pays homage to Ashton's founder Bill Taylor's time at Dunhill, before he left to start his own brand in the early 1980s. This rendition from Jimmy Craig features the form's characteristic cylindrical, flat-heeled, Poker-like bowl, as well as an abbreviated shank and mount-style stem arrangement. The long, arcing nature of languidly bent mouthpiece gives the composition a rather classy appearance, similar to the Prince but in a more practical, sure-sitting form that's ideal for use as a desk pipe. Belonging to Ashton's Quaint series and wearing a tan sandblast similar to that in the English workshop's Old Church finish, this piece is one we don't see often from Jimmy Craig and is a wonderful tribute to another venerated English firm.- Jeffery Sitts
