Mac Baren 3 Pipe Ashtray


I've been looking quite some time for a decent pipe ashtray when I stumbled across this one. Since I enjoy, and will be soon reviewing a few blends of Mac Baren pipe tobacco I thought this was a perfect choice.

Quick Details
  • Ceramic
  • Holds 3 pipes
  • Cork knocker
  • Price: $18.89
Mac Baren Ashtray
Once I had this beauty out of the box I was pleased with the size (7" diameter and a touch over 2" in height), and the finish of this ceramic ashtray. The finish was smooth and glossy over the entire surface and did appear large enough to hold three resting pipes at the same time.

After a few days of use it was quick and easy to clean, all it took was a wipe with a damp cloth. The cork knocker is well attached and so far shows no signs of wiggle or looseness and it is large enough to hold three resting pipes at once.

The only negative aspect to the ashtray is the ashtray itself is a bit small and if you are not careful the contents of your pipe can land outside its' boundaries, but that has not really been an issue.

If you are looking for a product of this type, this would be a good bet. It has a great price point, very nice appearance and is quite functional.

I give this ashtray a 9 out of 10.
