Irish Estates: Peterson Dublin Filter Rusticated (999) (Fishtail) (9mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-004-10796
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.
Peterson has offered a line of filtered pipes since 1947, evolving over the decades in name and finish: Since 1997 the Dublin Filter comprised the Irish marque's only filtered series, with the Army Filter introduced in 2021, and all pipes within these lines are drilled to hold a 9mm filter, (Peterson's proprietary charcoal filters being offered in packs of 150- and 40-count boxes). Often, when a marque features filtered versions of their standard shapes, certain designs must be slightly altered to accommodate wider drilling; however, Peterson's signature aesthetic hews toward more robust shanks and transitions, making for a seamless cross-over between filtered and non-filtered renditions of the same shape. Presented in a rugged, dark-stained rustication, with lighter hues flecking the texture's peaks to match twin nickel accent rings, the Dublin Filter line here displays a handsome aesthetic that remains both striking and traditionally reserved.-Truett Smith
