Irish Estates: Peterson Flame Grain with Silver (80s) (Fishtail) (2014)
Product Number: 004-004-7457
Peterson's "80S" is a muscular take on the classic bent Bulldog, featuring the Irish marque's penchant for robust, stout proportions with its thick, sturdy shank bearing almost as much visual weight as the bowl. In a way, it's a diamond-shanked companion to the Irish marque's signature "999" Rhodesian, both designs featuring a squat bowl, the same low-slung disposition, and a set of beadlines around their tapered rims just above the tight transition. The "80S" also serves as a bent alternative to Peterson's "150" straight Bulldog for smokers who prefer a downturned stem for easy clenching, yet prefer the masculine look and feel of such a timeless design and the iconic Peterson aesthetic.
Peterson's esteemed Flame Grain series consists of pipes crafted from select quality briar, carefully chosen for their choice grain orientation. The designation represents one of Peterson's highest grades, and in this example the lively array of grain is brought out by a smoky, black walnut contrast stain. The darker finish is paired to a jet-black stem, drawing focus to the sterling silver accent band around the shank. Peterson is renowned for their silver work, each accoutrement handcrafted by one of the Sallynoggin factory's expert silversmiths. The combination of superlative grain and esteemed silverwork make this Flame Grain piece a perfect example of one of Peterson's higher-tiered offerings.-Jeffery Sitts
