Askwith: Sandblasted Morta Devil Anse
Product Number: 002-499-0347
The Devil Anse has developed a dedicated following ever since the iconic design appeared in the Hatfields & McCoys mini-series with several artisans and workshops delivering their own renditions over the years. Chris Askwith is certainly no stranger to the beloved shape as the English carver has crafted quite a few of them, with each one being unique and immediately recognizable as Askwith's work. Chris often fashions the design from morta, with this example hewing to that convention.
This piece is also an incredibly compact interpretation as it measures less than four inches in length and can easily be slipped into a pocket at a moment's notice. The plump, Egg-like bowl displays the shape's signature forward cant and houses a surprisingly deep chamber for its size. A jet-black stain highlights the sandblasted morta grain while the polyester stem's hot pink and swirling black hues provides some vibrant contrast. This piece can be clenched effortlessly thanks to its light weight and abbreviated length, making this an ideal choice for anyone looking for a Nosewarmer or a versatile travel pipe.- Jeffery Sitts
