Ashton: Pebble Grain Bent Billiard (XXX) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-006-3831
Bill Ashton-Taylor got his start making pipes for Dunhill, but after mastering the craft, realized he needed to set out on his own, so he founded the British marque Ashton. Sadly, Bill passed away in 2009, but pipe maker Jimmy Craig proudly carries on the Ashton name. This bent Billiard by Jimmy Craig of Ashton is a classic rendition of the English shape-chart standard. The tall, tapered bowl is paired to a well-bent shank-and-stem arrangement, creating a smoking posture perfectly suited for comfortable jaw-hanging. The stummel is dressed in one of Ashton's iconic finishes, the ruby hues of the Pebble Grain sandblast, which showcases craggy ripples of growth rings radiating from a tightly-packed core of birdseye on the heel.--Zach Podl
