Ashton: Pebble Grain Dublin with Silver (LX)
Product Number: 002-006-2955
When it comes to creative interpretations of pipe-chart standards, few execute shaping and finishing better than Jimmy Craig and the team of artisans at Ashton. The English workshop began in the 1980s when Bill Ashton-Taylor left Dunhill to start his own pipe brand. Since then, the Ashton name has become synonymous with traditional English shapes and immaculate finishes, noted particularly for sandblasting and the use of brindled vulcanite. Here, both of those conventions commend this lengthy Dublin — bold and full-bodied, the bowl is almost cylindrical in its shaping but still flares in traditional Dublin fashion. It has been finished in a glossy, dark chocolate sandblast, the stummel's reddish-brown hue pairing handsomely with the rust red tones of the cumberland stem. A broad, bight band of sterling silver adorns the shank, making the overall composition even more stunning.-Truett Smith
