Redesigned Piston Cigar Ashtray
This ashtray is based on the JACOBS L6 engine piston, a historic component widely used in the 1930s. The JACOBS L6 engine powered US Air Force fighter planes during World War II, earning it the title of the 'heart' of the Air Force. With a scarcity of surviving pistons, their historical significance is remarkable.
We redesigned the original piston, creating the world's first ashtray crafted from a fighter engine piston. This inspired design not only gives the piston a new purpose but also preserves its original mechanical beauty."
