Askwith: Sandblasted Morta Billiard Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-499-0415
Chris Askwith's design style of pairing classic shapes with modern color palettes is handsomely realized with this straight Billiard. Morta is a frequently utilized medium by the English carver, its light weight, resistance to heat and neutral smoking flavor bringing to mind similar characteristics of meerschaum pipes. Tall and somewhat stout, this piece pairs a poised bowl, with its gently rounded heel and chamfered rim, to a fairly lengthy stretch of elegantly tapering shank and stem, the latter consisting of the artisan's signature polyester, its light blue and cream hues contrasting the dark sandblast covering the stummel.-Angela Robertson
