The Business finish is one of the original finishes offered by Ascorti when the company first opened. The pipes feature a unique rustication that has been copied by many brands, but the Ascorti Business is the most attractive. The pipes come in all shapes and sizes and offer a rugged beauty that few pipes can rival. If you like rusticated pipes, try an Ascorti Business today.
The texture of this pipe in the hand is superb and since the walls of the bowl are quite thin it dispenses heat very well. The chamber is quite large making for a long smoke. Sipping is highly recommended when smoking this pipe because steady puffing can dispense sufficient heat to make it uncomfortable to hold. The thin bowl walls are probably the primary reason for this aspect. So if you like to hold rather than clench you need to sip. However if you are a clencher the thin bowl walls are not a problem heat wise and make the pipe light enough to clench without causing an ache in your jaw. All in all this is one of my favorite pipes for a lengthy smoke while reading a good book. if you decide to get one I am confident you will be pleased with your purchase.
