Askwith: Sandblasted Nosewarmer Pot Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-499-0493

A pipe smoker since 2006, Chris Askwith got his start in the craft of pipe making by translating his expertise as a silversmith to restoring estate pipes. After a chance encounter in 2007 at a pipe club meeting, Askwith was able to borrow tools from a fellow pipe maker for the opportunity to create what would be his first pipes. After selling these pipes, Askwith used the revenue to outfit his workshop in Plymouth, England, where he now makes all of his pipes by hand. Askwith's style takes Anglo-French shape standards and imbues them with playful twists, experimenting with finishes and proportions while still retaining precision in design.

This Nosewarmer Pot from Askwith boasts an exceptionally petite, lightweight figure that's well-suited for on-the-go smoking sessions. A squat bowl is positioned at the fore of the composition with a dynamic forward cant, its walls flaring broadly from the heel toward the softly rounded rim and granting this piece a Dublin-esque figure. Out back, a compact shank transitions from the bowl and pairs to a tapered stem fashioned from creamy, white acrylic with a subtle striated pattern. Contrasting the bright acrylic is a crisp, earthy sandblast dressing the stummel, which lends this piece a fine texture beneath a warm stain.
