Askwith: Sandblasted Morta Rhodesian
Product Number: 002-499-0317
We've seen a similar style of Rhodesian from Chris Askwith before, also replete with a modernist color palette and fashioned from dense morta. This particular rendition, though, nods to Comoy's iconic "283" design. Like all Rhodesians, the "283" features a round shank paired to a beadlined, Bulldog bowl; however, what makes Comoy's design markedly special is the added mass lent to the shank and transition. Such shaping on this tribute forces the single beadline to be higher set, making the rim's taper more pronounced. Chris has fashioned this interpretation perfectly but imbued it with his own sense of modern style as Comoy's never would have rendered one from sandblasted morta. The semi-translucent, umber-hued polyester stem pairs well with the stummel's coloration and is a slight departure from Askwith's penchant for vibrantly colored mouthpieces.-Truett Smith
