Askwith: Smooth Morta Dublin Cavalier Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-499-0422
A striking, lengthy take on the old Cavalier design, this morta rendition from Chris Askwith adroitly demonstrates the English carver's skills in contemporizing traditional shapes.
Measuring over seven inches in length, it features a Dublin bowl that flares broadly to gently inflated rim atop a quick taper to its flattened heel. A fully functioning Cavalier, it offers a removable cap at the foot to drain away moisture, while the elongated, rounded shank appears to "pierce" the lower bowl. The stummel is fashioned from morta, the semi-petrified bog oak material prized for its light weight, neutral flavor smoking properties, and intriguing grain patterns. It's presented smoothly finished in an extra-dark tone, the rather formal color palette tastefully refined and well suited for this shape.-Angela Robertson
