Askwith: Sandblasted Rhodesian Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-499-0436
English artisan Chris Askwith specializes in traditional shaping with updated accoutrements, often including elegant metallic accents and multicolored polyester stems. This Rhodesian is well in line with Askwith's style, featuring timeless shaping in a sharp presentation. The design is evocative of Comoy's "498" and "499" Rhodesian shapes, with a plump bowl and muscular shank. The bowl bears its customary beadlines and tapered rim, paired to a soft heel in this rendition. Out back, a hand-cut stem of Askwith's signature polyester brings up the rear in hues of brindled cumberland that contrast handsomely with the stummel's blonde sandblast, offering a wealth of tactile and visual interest.-Gabriel Bass
