Irish Estates: Peterson Shannon (150) (Fishtail)
Product Number: 004-004-7305
Peterson's "150" straight Bulldog is a pert, upright rendition that fits in perfectly with the Irish firm's characteristically muscular shaping style. It's quite the forthright take on the classic English shape, but in keeping with the marque's tradition, it features an incredibly robust, crisp diamond shank. The bowl wears a set of well-defined beadlines and displays a firm heel underneath, though it remains a touch leaner than other, more squat renditions of the shape, making the "150" an ideal choice for those who prefer a taller, trimmer style of Bulldog bowl.
Like the Aran line, the Shannon presents a thoroughly traditional appeal. The simple combination of a smooth, walnut stain paired to a jet-black stem defines a reserved finishing style that has spanned decades. Not every style stands the test of time, but this deep brown and black color palette is one that's as popular today as it was in vintage French and English catalogs from the early 1900s. Timeless and traditional, the Shannon returns to classic, unadorned pipe finishes, the briar's grain pattern being the only accent needed.-Jeffery Sitts
