    I don't know about recent production, but I have 9 early to mid-80s Ascortis that I smoke on a semi-regular basis, plus three others from that time period that were professionally cleaned and given to me that I haven't smoked yet. The 9 I have smoked are great smokers, and have always done well no matter what blend I've smoked in them. I don't know anything about the quality of them from the 1990s on, but if they are anything like the ones I own, they will do well for you.

    I have one Ascorti business billiard that I picked up in a Nashville shop maybe 15 years ago. Nothing wrong with it; it's a good smoker but it's a little heavy for me so I don't reach for it too often. I wonder if they are still in production but I'd echo JimInks here and say that they're a decent mid-grade but if it's a bargain, go for it.

    I had a new dear, oom Paul. It was a well made very pretty pipe, and a real decent smoke, unfortunately it was way to big for my taste so I sold it.

    Any Ascortis that I have owned have been very good smoking pipes.
