Peterson: Adventures of Sherlock Holmes Smooth Ebony Hopkins Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-21879
Named in honor of Stanley Hopkins, an Inspector of The Yard who made appearances in The Adventure of the Golden Pince-Nez
, The Adventure of Black Peter
, and the The Adventure of the Abbey Grange
. Hopkins was one of the few overt admirers of the techniques of the master sleuth, though (much to Holmes' chagrin) often arrived at erroneous conclusions. This is a rather artful take on the Cherrywood, tall and deep of chamber, but with a prominent cant and graceful shank and stem which both avoid the static and utilitarian look of the basic Poker/Cherrywood. Now factor in the gravitas
added by the dress Ebony stain, and this is a sitter for all hours.
