Ashton - 35%
Bill died in September 2009 and Jimmy Craig (also a former Dunhill pipeman) took over the production of the Ashton brand (he stamps JC on the pipes in addition to the regular stampings). Continuing the Bill Taylor tradition every Ashton pipe is oil cured, all stems are hand-cut from solid vulcanite rod and each is done with the same sandblasting technique that Ashtons have become famous for. A few pipes will have silver bands as adornment, but most are classic shapes with no adornment.
