Askwith: Weathered Bone Pencil Shank Pot
Product Number: 002-499-0209
This gorgeous Pot combines so many of my favorite aspects of Chris Askwith's signature style. First there's the overall shape: a downright classic Pot of Group 1 size, complete with one of Askwith's well-executed pencil shanks. Second there's the Weathered Bone finish: pale as bone and quite crisp to the touch. It's perhaps my favorite finish from the young carver, one which he actually realized through happenstance while experimenting with different finishing techniques. Then lastly we come to the mouthpiece: a slender, tapered bit of bright sky blue and jet-black polyester, patterned to emulate swirls of smoke in the cross-section. It's the perfect example of Chris' classical, extroverted style, and put simply, if you don't buy this pipe, I will.- Andrew Wike
