Ryan Boyd, founder and CEO of Boyd Motor Company, has long been a fan of fine-machined pieces of art; now he creates them. The idea for the Denver cigar ashtray started several years ago in his shop in Colorado when Ryan looked for, and couldn’t find, a “Made in the USA” ashtray that was fabricated from his favorite material, 6061 billet aluminum. He had a nice heavy glass cigar ashtray that had 4 stations for individual cigars but he was looking for one that would match his sensibilities and the aesthetics of his shop – in other words, one wrought from billet aluminum. A master machinist with an artistic flair, Boyd knew he could make an ashtray that was tasteful, affordable and better than anything else on the market. The result was the iconic Denver cigar ashtray.
“As a machinist, I always look not just at the end result but how to get there. When you look at the Denver ashtray, you will see that the utmost attention was paid to the tool paths and shaping to make this a unique single cigar ashtray that will enhance most work or home environments.” said owner Ryan Boyd. “I produced a previous limited edition ashtray that sold out immediately just through word of mouth. With such a positive response, I decided to produce the Denver to meet the obvious demand. The well known high-end retail website Touch of Modern has made that easy for me.”
As a result, there is the first run of Boyd Motor Company Denver ashtrays available exclusively through Touch of Modern until January 30th at 12 PM PST. They are discounted to $89.99 (from a retail of $125) and once they sell out, production will not happen for the Denver for a very long time—so now is your opportunity to buy this one-of-a-kind luxury cigar ashtray.
