Askwith: Sandblasted Billiard
Product Number: 002-499-0266
While the shaping of this Billiard is fairly conservative and noticeably influenced by the classic English shape chart, the lively color palette on display is signature Chris Askwith. The English carver is heavily influenced by timeless English designs, but tweaks and re-imagines them in his own highly unique style, utilizing stems that often display vibrant color palettes. Proportionally, this offering is around a Group 2 in size and is exceptionally lightweight as well. It's certainly a pipe you'll want to take with you everywhere not only because of its versatility, but also the way its polyester mouthpiece complements the stummel's crisp, jet-black sandblast. A swirling mix of orange and black dresses the stem, making it an ideal choice for the upcoming fall months — especially with Halloween right around the corner. But this briar should have no problem being a faithful companion year round, catching the eye of anyone near it. If you're a fan of traditional shape designs, but prefer snazzier colors, I'd recommend Chris Askwith's work every time.- Jeffery Sitts
