    Chris Askwith Dress Pipe. Group 1

    I've been looking at this pipe for a while now and today mentioned to Sonia that this would make a great Dress Pipe for the wedding next year (this swung it) So a couple of emails to Chris and he has kindly put this on lay away for me for a few weeks, it's too soon after Christmas to buy it just now.

    It's just perfect for a short smoke and I just couldn't resist it looks, the pipe will be smoked before that though as it needs breaking in.

    I would like to say it was a pleasure dealing with him, A gentleman indeed.

    Pipe description is.

    Lovely little billiard/pot in a group 1 size. Beautiful honey colour briar with delicate grain, flush fitted sterling silver band and a black stem, a modern classic.

    Length: 130mm

    Height: 33mm

    Bowl dia: 17mm

    Bowl depth: 27mm

    Weight: 22g

    I fear you will be required to wear a bowtie whilst smoking that beautiful pipe Ally.
    I can resist anything but temptation.
