Askwith Pipes

Askwith Pipes | Iwan Ries & Co.

Askwith Pipes are made using briar, olive wood or Morta (10,000 year old semi-fossilized Bog Oak), airways are drilled to 4mm. Lucite, Ebonite, Cumberland and Horn stems are used, very open inside and funneled at the bit. They are usually fitted with delrin tenons for ease of insertion and removal. Askwith uses a variety of exotic woods and metals for stem accents.

Chris Askwith lives in Plymouth, in the South West of England, famous as the place where the Pilgrim fathers left for America. He has been making pipes since 2007.
