Ashton: Pebble Grain Bent Dublin (XXX) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-006-4067

William "Bill" Ashton Taylor began working for Dunhill in 1959 at 15 years old, manning one of the legendary English marque's lathes after a lengthy apprenticeship. During his time at the White Spot, Bill absorbed all the secrets of the craft he could from their experienced carvers, coming into his own as a carver and marking the start of a lengthy career. After feeling the need to start his own company, Bill founded Ashton pipes in 1983, going into business for himself and holding his work to extremely strict standards of quality that have earned the Ashton name an excellent reputation. William passed away in 2009, entrusting Ashton's production to Jimmy Craig, his protege, who has maintained the stringent standards of his predecessor, creating pieces with timeless appeal and classic charm. This bent Dublin is a slight departure from the workshop's devotion to classic English shapes, incorporating a diamond shank, pronounced heel, and a remarkably tight transition into the typically flowing design. However, this is a rendition of the profile that's fairly regularly seen in the English marque's portfolio. The bowl displays a very subtle flare, a serious-feeling interpretation for a Dublin and a form well suited to the dark hues and texture of the English marque's Pebble Grain sandblast. The Bulldog-like shank rises with aplomb to the matching diamond-shaped shoulders of a jet-black bent tapered stem.
