Ashton: Brindle Rhodesian (LX) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-006-3411
It's seldom that we see "LX" sized Rhodesians from Ashton, making this iteration of the shape rather rare, though it further stands out by being a rather compact example of the larger size designation. Coming in at just over five and a half inches long, this rendition of the classic profile is rather timeless, with an elegantly curving shank-and-stem combination that offers a comfortable smoking posture. Said stem's saddle orientation keeps things sleek through the aft side and nicely balances the hearty build of the bowl. This bowl certainly earns the pipe its "LX" appellation, rising to over two inches in height and holding a capacious chamber within its walls, the handsome curves lending a pleasing feel in hand. A slow taper to the rim is marked by a pair of crisp beadlines, and the entirety of the stummel is dressed in an earthy sandblast complimented by the cumberland stem, all courtesy of the Brindle finish.-John McElheny
