I've been a fan of Chris Askwith pipes for a long time, particularly his execution of the Prince shape and his colored stems. Last week, at the NOLA show, SmokingPipes had several new Askwith pipes, but they were out of my price range. I was looking for one with a cream stem. Unbelievably a Prince with a cream stem and natural finish showed up on Ebay and the owner accepted my offer. It looks to be used sparingly so hopefully close to these original pictures from Chris. (the ebay pix were not great).
