Irish Estates: Peterson Donegal Rocky with Silver (65) (P-Lip) (1980)
Product Number: 004-004-7520
In terms of overall scale, Peterson's "65" bent Billiard is one of the Irish marque's smaller bent Billiard renditions, especially when compared to the likes of their "XL90" and "X220." While in a smaller package, however, the "65" still features Peterson's signature sense of proportions — the transition, shank, and stem base all quite robust in relation to the rest of the piece. This design cue separates the Irish aesthetic from that of the French and English pipemaking approach, with the "65" towing the line in its compact form but substantial presence. It's the perfect option for those who want the best of both worlds.
Named after County Donegal in northwest Ireland, Peterson's Donegal Rocky series offers one of the Irish firm's most distinctive and immediately recognizable finishes. Much like the mountainous region it's inspired by, the rustication style of the Donegal Rocky line is incredibly craggy and provides plenty of stimulating texture, transforming any pipe that wears it into a rugged workhorse smoker. Peterson's first rusticated finish, the Donegal Rocky dates back to 1945, and this particular offering from 1980 bears a silver band, forgoing the nickel accent used today, offering a touch of refinement against the dark, red-tinged stain of the stummel.-Truett Smith
