Askwith: Rusticated Billiard

Product Number: 002-499-0320

This is one of Chris Askwith's larger renditions of the classic straight Billiard, hewing closely to, say, Group 5 or 6 size — both in terms of overall dimensions and chamber depth. Shape-wise, however, it fits well into the English carver's other traditional shapes. The proportions are right in line with classic pipe chart standards, benefiting further from the exacting engineering of a skilled artisan. Dressed in a dense and deep rustication, the finish was well considered for a pipe of this size, as the large bowl offers all the more surface area on which to appreciate the time-consuming process needed to achieve such a rugged texture. While the stummel's stain is dark and reserved, Chris has fitted it with a pearly white polyester stem, nodding to his signature style of contrasting, modern color palettes.
