Designed as sculpture, these ashtrays provide visual refreshment from the common notched bowl format and slip past notice by the anti-cigar contingent.
Like all Tool Couture products, they are made in Washington State by a small team of fabricators. Their love of shop-craft created the company’s aesthetic of simple forms that highlight materials and processes.
These ashtrays provide a compact, personal, berth for the smoker’s cigar and fit well in tight or crowded places. They also travel well, with the aluminum model designed specifically for lightweight portability.
3 models are available. All of them will gracefully accommodate cigars in ring gauges between 38 and 70, and in any length.
The cigars shown are from RoMa Craft Tobac and are a Short Perfecto (5” x 50), Lonsdale (6-1/2” x 42) and 2013 Roma Craft La Campana de Panama Soberana (5” x 60/46).
