Askwith: Sandblasted Morta Dublin
Product Number: 002-499-0300
Chris Askwith's ability to modernize shape chart standards is consistently impressive, with this Dublin being a welcome addition to his portfolio. The English carver crafts some of the most unique pieces within modern pipe making thanks to his extensive use of alternative materials, polyester stems, and vibrant color palettes. All of those elements are present in this offering, which has been fashioned from jet-black morta and sandblasted, coaxing out a mesmerizing array of grain that's unique to the medium. Like many of the English carver's pipes, the stem is made from polyester, offering a feel somewhere in between vulcanite and acrylic and is an excellent way to display some vibrant colors. On this example Askwith has opted for a tapered stem of hot pink and swirling black tones, resulting in a pipe that has plenty of personality and style.- Jeffery Sitts
