Irish Estates: Peterson Donegal Rocky (D12) (Fishtail)
Product Number: 004-004-8088
Peterson's "D12" bent Billiard is a sleek, svelte rendition featuring some Danish-inspired line work and is remarkably unique when compared to the Irish marque's vast portfolio of stout, muscular pieces. The "D" series was originally produced for Peterson's Danish distributor, Larsen and Peterson, around 1996 and focuses on the characteristic designs cues typical within traditional Danish pipe making. As such, the "D12" features a slender shank-and-stem combination that transitions softly into the tapering, slightly forward-canted bowl for a mix of soft lines and elegant curves.
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 is presented here with a bright nickel band offering a touch of refinement against the dark, red-tinged stain of the stummel.-Jeffery Sitts
