Askwith: Sandblasted Bent Billiard Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-499-0426
An artisan pipe maker based in Plymouth, England, Chris Askwith often fashions classic shapes elevated by stunning color palettes and individual shaping. This bent Billiard is a wonderful example of the carver's style, reinterpreting the traditional pipe-chart standard through sleek, streamlined proportions and a striking stem for a presentation that merges conventional and modernist design styles. Overall, the form models the Prince shape's elongated profile and slightly bent posture, leading into a slightly rounded and tapered bowl for a poised disposition and maintains a light weight and comfortable smoking posture. The stummel wears an extra-fine sandblast and dark stain, in line with traditional examples from decades past, but it's juxtaposed against a shimmery metal accent and a hand-cut polyester stem of stunning cerulean and indigo hues for a vibrant, one-of-a-kind aesthetic.-Truett Smith
