Askwith: Sandblasted Morta Rhodesian
Product Number: 002-499-0299
Within Chris Askwith's portfolio, morta rivals briar when it comes to materials from which the English carver renders pipes. It suits his extroverted style, displaying a grain pattern not found in briar, especially when sandblasted. A Rhodesian with such a finish is found here marked by sleek lines and a svelte nature overall. The elongation of the stem translates to a streamlined profile that urges the eye forward toward the canted bowl. Said bowl is classically shaped, displaying the Rhodesian's iconic beadline and tapered rim, while the lower portion is softly rounded for a comfortable in-hand posture. Glossy and jet-black, with an intriguing texture, the stummel contrasts handsomely against the polyester stem, a common material used by Chris — with this one boasting fiery red, striated hues that call to mind a more vibrant cumberland.-Truett Smith
