Irish Estates: Peterson Dublin Castle (999) (Fishtail) (2015)
Product Number: 004-004-8441
Defined by a Bulldog bowl and round shank, the Rhodesian is a classic shape that's enjoyed a place on traditional pipe charts for well over a century. On Peterson's chart, the age-old form is designated as the "999," showcasing everything pipe smokers love about the traditional shape — hard lines around the bowl; a tapering rim; and a stout, muscular disposition in hand — while also boasting the Irish marque's conventional shaping cues. The bowl tapers above and below the design's defining beadlines, while the rim barely rises above the transition thanks to the extra heft lent to the shank — a signature stylistic element of Peterson. It's finished here in the dark walnut sandblast of the Dublin Castle series and handsomely accented by a sterling silver band, the line paying homage to the time-enduring fortress of its namesake.-Truett Smith
