Askwith: Sandblasted Pot
Product Number: 002-499-0319
While the shaping of this Pot is fairly conservative and noticeably influenced by the classic English shape chart, the exuberant 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 piece is well within Group 1 dimensions and is exceptionally lightweight, weighing only 25 grams. It's certainly a pipe you'll want to take with you everywhere not only because of its versatility, but also the way its creamy white, polyester mouthpiece brilliantly contrasts the stummel's crisp, walnut-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 lively colors, I'd recommend Chris Askwith's work every time.- Jeffery Sitts
