Ashton: Old Church Bent Billiard with Silver Army Mount (LX) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-006-3360
Quite a hearty bent Billiard from English workshop Ashton, this pipe has certainly earned its "LX" size designation, with a full two inches of bowl filling up the hand when gripped. Possessed of a subtle, supple plumpness, this bowl is very comfortable to hold, and the wide, open transition enhances this further, giving you ample room to drape a thumb and drawing your attention to the short shank's vibrant silver army mount. This mount holds a svelte tapered stem of jet-black vulcanite, complimenting the stummel's Old Church tanblast quite well, giving this large, classically inclined pipe a dose of classic styling. Said sandblast additionally reveals some truly handsome grain on the stummel, with plenty of texture to keep eyes and fingertips entertained.-John McElheny
