Askwith Yin & Yang Pipe Set
I asked Chris Askwith to create me a Yin & Yang two pipe set. I love billiards, and we settled on two large billiards - a black morta billiard and a tan blast billiard. Today he sent me the photos of the set and I wanted to share them here - I love the way this set looks.
That is gorgeous! A very fine set indeed!
A smile will always keep them guessing.
Now those are some stunning pipes! Both are gorgeous, but am partial to the tan blast. I've been on the lookout for a similar pipe for a while now... Congrats!

Both beautiful pipes, but that blast is utterly amazing.

Hot damn I want a morta pipe.
Those look super sharp.

Whoa! Very cool; like the box too

I really like that morta.
As long as I got a pipe full of baccy and a nose full of snuff, I'm a happy camper

Those look fantastic. Congrats!
Quite stunning, pipes and presentation -- congratulations, Peck!
I don't care for straight pipes that much but that is a lovely set, particularly the morta.
Thanks guys. Can't wait to smoke 'em
Stunning set ! Chris is a great guy.
Beautiful pipes. I like the yin yang concept as well. Hope they smoke well for ya!
The world we have created is a product of our thinking; it cannot be changed without changing our thinking.
peck, both are fantastic looking pipes, I love the concept. Well done, I am sure they will be great smokers for you as I have heard nothing but good things about his work.
@peckinpahomme, sorry to be so tardy getting back to this thread. Your set is stunning! My Askwith Morta is very like your black one, it has a cream mouth piece (Irish Coffee?!) but is a long-stemmed Lovat. I think Chris is a rising star in the pipe carving world. My 23 year-old is showing some interest in pipes. So, as a graduation gift I am planning to commission a pitch black Morta with a black mouth piece (Darth Vader!) and a silver band (he loves embellishments!!) I will ask Chris to make an engraved presentation case for it.
Re tobaccos for my Morta, I have said in my thread that IMO my Morta suits Balkan flakes. I have now tried it with other tobaccos. My pipe (Norfolk bogwood) is not 'neutral' - it definitely adds something to the tobacco, something I like! A kind of nutty, smoky taste. This still seems to be favouring Latakia-rich Balkans rather than VA flakes. But it's early days yet!
As Cortez would say, Holy Resurrected Threads, Batman!
Beautiful set, and a fantastic idea.
Two beauty's, Peck! I don't know which I like better!
