Classic English pipes originated by a former employee of Dunhill, who wanted to start his own company. The pipes have an excellent quality, by first making the right choice for the right briar. For rustic pipes, other blocks are used than for the smooth variants. Second, the bruyere receives a unique treatment with oil and drying to improve the life span. Unfortunately, it is difficult to get Ashton's tobacco pipes, because they are only made sparsely and because there are many enthusiasts.
