Askwith: Sandblasted Billiard
Product Number: 002-499-0283
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 compact nosewarmer is well within Group 1 dimensions and is exceptionally lightweight. It's certainly a pipe you'll want to take with you everywhere not only because of its versatility, but also the way its crimson-swirled, polyester mouthpiece complements the stummel's crisp, ruby-stained sandblast. This briar should have no problem being a faithful, pocket-friendly companion, catching the eye of anyone near it. If you're a fan of traditional designs, but prefer snazzier colors, I'd recommend Chris Askwith's work every time.- Jeffery Sitts
