Irish Estates: Peterson Cara Smooth (65) (Fishtail) (2015) (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-004-7601
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.
The Cara series from Peterson presents the classic ebony and silver dress pipe motif. Like a formal tuxedo, the black finish is contrasted elegantly by a sterling silver band at the shank end, the flash of silver echoed by the stummel's smooth, glossy aesthetic. The Irish marque is renowned for its use of sterling — an accenting material that's been intertwined with pipemaking for over a century — and each silversmith spends years mentoring under the factory's senior craftsmen, having developed a decades long tradition of quality silverwork. The Cara series, named after the Irish word for "friend," boasts the classic, stylish aesthetic all at an impressively accessible price point for silver-accented pieces, making for a true smoking companion.-Truett Smith
