Ashton: Pebble Grain Don (XXX) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-006-3639
Bill Taylor founded Ashton pipes in the early 1980s after a successful career at Dunhill, and this Achievement pipe hearkens back to the "45" from his alma mater, a shape also known as the Don. Since Taylor's passing, Jimmy Craig carries on the Ashton tradition of fine handmade pipes and this XX-sized Poker is an excellent example. The tall bowl is slightly forward-surging due to a canted, flat heel and is wearing a crisp, earth-toned finish to accentuate the briar's natural beauty. The transition is elevated and abbreviated, quickly reaching a jet-black mount that supports a lengthy, lithe stretch of tapered vulcanite that turns downward gently. Equally comfortable resting in your hand or sitting on a desk, this is a highly functional smoker with some old English style, a piece of living history that is sure to become a revered member in any collector's rotation.-John McElheny
