Ashton: Claret Achievement Poker with Antler Army Mount (XXX)
Product Number: 002-006-2887
When it comes to sturdy, masculine, and practical shapes, the classic English Poker is unrivaled in its simplicity and utility. Renowned around the world for its sturdy-sitting ability and firm, no-nonsense aesthetic, the cylindrical pipe chart staple is the standard for any desk pipe and workhorse smoker.
In this Claret rendition, Ashton presents the traditional form in the English marque's vivid, ruby sandblast, hearkening back to Dunhill's older Redbark finish 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 marque's classic English style and reputation of quality craftsmanship and stunning finishes.
It's offered here as part of the esteemed Achievement series — a line that Jimmy typically reserves for pipes showcasing alternate accent materials or unique shaping cues. Here, the Claret finish is paired to an army mount of genuine antler, the scarlet stain contrasted smartly by the off-white tones of the antler.-Truett Smith
