The Wicklow series from Peterson, sold exclusively at Smokingpipes.com, is evolving constantly. Originally the finish used a look similar to the Donegal Rocky only with an intense sandblast. There was the nickel band and burgundy-red and black staining, but now it's great to see the changes. The contrast stain has moved to a black and walnut composition which is quite appealing. It's a change that creates a certain edge to the series, one which works extremely well on this Bulldog.
