Ashton: Brindle Rhodesian (XX)
Product Number: 002-006-3045
Jimmy Craig of Ashton consistently proves himself to be one of the most proficient craftsmen of timeless shape standards in the pipe world. While, most certainly, these traditional renditions have brought Ashton considerable prestige through its history, some of their more interesting creations are designs that take classic shapes and imbue them with modern styling cues, such as this Brindle Rhodesian. With a marbled crimson and olive stem, this Rhodesian is possessed of a steep curve and a relatively high-kicking shank, as well as a heel aligned almost exactly with the aft of the rim, making for a silhouette that radiates a forward ebbing momentum. While not a purely traditional rendering of the shape, this modern take on a classic is a handsome pipe, sure to make for a lovely smoker.-John McElheny
