Ashton: Claret Lovat with Spiral Carving (XX)
Product Number: 002-006-3077
Jimmy Craig of Ashton pipes displays his skill and creativity here by rendering the classic Lovat profile with a twist. A literal twist, in this case, as he has cleverly carved the arrow-straight shank and stem with a spiral fluting to look like an iron baluster that has been heated and twisted. It is so well executed that I have to tell myself, "no, that really is briar and brindled vulcanite." It is dressed in Ashton's signature Claret bright ruby sandblast, with the coloration matched in the motif of the abbreviated hand-cut saddle stem, for an unforgettable aesthetic. The fit and finish is superb, as we expect from Ashton, making this an ideal find for anyone who is a fan of straight pipes and wants something both classical and inventive.- Joel Balyeat
