Askwith: Sandblasted Morta Devil Anse with Briar Stem Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-499-0459
Chris Askwith's Devil Anse renditions always catch my eye and never fail to impress with their finishes and vivid color palettes. While we've previously seen the English carver craft the iconic shape from olivewood and briar, it's his morta renditions that may be the most striking of all. The medium's unique grain patterns and ability to offer countless color combinations are a real treat, and when rendered by someone as talented as Chris Askwith, the possibilities are truly endless.
Here, the English artisan has delivered a compact, pocket-friendly take on the iconic shape, one that features a canted, trim bowl perched at the end of an abbreviated, round shank. The sandblasted finish has brought out a fascinating display of grain, offering plenty of rich texture for your fingers to wander over. Just as astonishing as the stummel is the briar mouthpiece, with its warm chestnut stain providing some excellent contrast to the jet-black morta. It's a remarkable pipe that highlights Askwith's creativity and ability to use alternative materials in such a unique manner.-Gabriel Bass
