Ashton: Achievement Poker with Antler Army Mount (XXX)
Product Number: 002-006-2825
The traditional English Poker is unrivaled in its simplicity and utility, offering a sturdy, masculine, and practical shape. It's beloved by pipe smokers for its sturdy-sitting ability and firm, no-nonsense aesthetic. Quite simply, the cylindrical pipe chart staple is the standard for any desk pipe and workhorse smoker.
In this rendition, Ashton presents the traditional form in a dark, craggy sandblast, hearkening back to the blasts seen on Patent era Dunhills and Bill Ashton-Taylor's involvement with that marque before starting his own brand in the early 1980s. Jimmy Craig, who now fashions Ashton pipes after Bill's passing, continues the firm's classic English style and reputation of quality craftsmanship and stunning finishes.
This Poker is offered here as part of Ashton's esteemed Achievement series — a line that Jimmy typically reserves for pipes showcasing alternate accenting materials or unique shaping cues. The shank-end is accented by an army mount of genuine antler, the deep crimson stain contrasted smartly by the off-white tones and rustic grain pattern of the antler.-Truett Smith
