Rattray's: Dark Reign Sandblasted (121) (9mm)
Product Number: 002-599-1482
The Dark Reign line from Rattray's features six shapes exclusive to the series: the "120," "121," "122," "123," "124," and "125" designs. All differ in exact form and dimensions, but all are united by the Dark Reign's formal color palette and accents. Offered here is the "121" Devil Anse, a Belge-like rendition that forgoes the long, willowy profile characteristic of old, clay Belge and Cutty pipes in favor of a more abbreviated and stout version. It displays a forward-canted stance similar to that of the Dark Reign's "120" Rhodesian design, but with a neatly tapered shank-and-stem combination and, of course, the rounded, Egg-like bowl of the popular Devil Anse.
Marked by chrome accents and a dark stain, the Dark Reign series from Rattray's features a number of shapes in a striking, dress pipe-like motif. The line is most defined by its rim guard, matching the shank-end accent and adding to the presentation's contrasting palette, while also protecting the briar from being charred over years of tobacco lighting. This example wears the line's subtly sandblasted finish, offering a light in-hand texture for a more rugged take on the traditional dress pipe.-Truett Smith
