Askwith: Sandblasted Bent Pot Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-499-0476
English artisan Chris Askwith began his pipe journey in 2006, when he first started smoking a pipe and realized that the tools he used as a silversmith could be used to repair pipes. In 2007, he met Paul Hubbart, the man behind Larryson pipes, who gave Askwith a chance to make some pipes from scratch. Askwith eventually invested in specialized tooling that allowed him to produce original pipes full-time, and since then, he's become a prominent figure in artisan pipe making.
A handsome showcase of Askwith's style and attention to detail, this Pot boasts a plump, stout-walled bowl that stands at the fore of an upturned shank and a demurely curved mouthpiece. Said bowl possesses a broad, forward-ebbing heel that lends the entire shape an active appearance in profile. A subtly cinched waistline visually separates the brawny heel from the flared, chamfered rim, lending the bowl a Cauldron-like appearance. The subtly bent shank an stem provide a touch of gesture to the overall and encourage a comfortable smoking posture. A dark sandblast dresses the stummel and coaxes out rippling grain across the bowl's flanks.--Davin Hylton
