Askwith: Sandblasted Morta Poker with Brass Cap
Product Number: 002-499-0269
Immediately recognizable as the work of Chris Askwith thanks to its striking color palette and unique use of alternative materials, this Poker effortlessly mixes modern and classic design elements. At its core, this rendition hews closely to the archetypal form with its tall, cylindrical bowl, arrow straight shank and stem, and sure-sitting ability. However, unlike most renditions, this offering was crafted from jet-black morta and treated to a crisp sandblast, unveiling a mesmerizing display of tight, wavy grain around the towering bowl. While it's certainly visually appealing, there's also no shortage of rich texture to keep your fingers fascinated. The stummel's extra-dark color palette is contrasted brilliantly by the bright, tangerine-hued polyester mouthpiece as well as the flashy brass cap that adorns the rim. If you're a fan of classic shapes but want a pipe with plenty of flair and character, this Askwith is a perfect option.- Jeffery Sitts
