Askwith: Sandblasted Billiard
Product Number: 002-499-0173
Certainly the most conservative piece in this batch of pipes from Chris Askwith, this is essentially a very well proportioned, Group 3 sized Billiard with just a touch of extra briar lent to the transition and shank — giving it just the slightest implication of muscularity in profile. Fitting to that more reserved shaping, Chris kept things simple with the finish as well, dressing the briar in an extra dark, ultra-fine sandblast paired to a more traditional jet-black mouthpiece, with just a pale white acrylic band to accent. Of course, that minimalist approach also allows for more appreciation of the block's natural grain pattern, which Chris has brought out beautifully in this piece. Recommended for anyone who appreciates classical shapes.
