Askwith: Sandblasted Morta Cutty
Product Number: 002-499-0281
The Old World Cutty brought to the modern stage, Chris Askwith really shows off his penchant for taking vintage shapes and reinventing them to match his "classics for extroverts" aesthetic. Shape wise, Chris has followed the old model closely, with a plump bowl bearing a strong forward cant above a demonstrative heel spur, followed by a lean, rounded shank and tapered bit. The extroverted style, however, isn't via a vivid color palette, as is often the case in Askwith's work. Instead, the English carver adds individuality through the material used — the traditional shaping is fashioned from dense morta and paired to a matching, jet-black mouthpiece. If you're looking for a classic shape that'll stand out in a crowd (or on your pipe rack), this Askwith is certainly one to consider.- Andrew Wike
