Askwith: Sandblasted Morta Rhodesian Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-499-0460
Within Chris Askwith's portfolio, morta rivals briar when it comes to materials from which the English carver renders pipes. It suits his extroverted style, displaying a grain pattern not found in briar, especially when sandblasted. A Rhodesian with such a finish is found here marked by sleek lines and a svelte nature overall. The elongation of the stem translates to a streamlined profile that urges the eye forward toward the canted bowl. Said bowl is bold and angular displaying the Rhodesian's iconic beadline and tapered rim, while the lower portion is softly rounded for a comfortable in-hand posture. The stummel showcases unique, greyish-blue color palette, while the sandblast creates rich texture around the bowl — all perfectly complemented by a swirled polyester stem in matching hues.-Truett Smith
