Rattray's: Marlin (8)
Product Number: 002-599-1583
A lithe and slender bent Billiard, Rattray's "8" design is a classically inclined interpretation, one that conforms perfectly to any traditional pipe chart. It displays a deeper bend and a more pronounced S-curve compared to the Scottish marque's "106" while offering more compact, pocket-friendly dimensions than the extra-large "148." The downturned stem on the "8" provides a pleasant degree of balance and enables this pipe to be clenched with ease, resulting in a remarkably versatile and convenient smoker.
Honoring one of the Scottish marque's most popular tobaccos, Marlin Flake, Rattray's Marlin series consists of classic shapes fittingly dressed in a timeless finish. The designs are the same ones found in the Old Gowrie line, offering six shapes that are more slender and filterless, while the other six are slightly stouter and designed to accommodate 9mm filters. This particular design wears a deep, ruby-tinged stain that hearkens back to those used on vintage English pipes. Such a stain further accentuates the traditional appeal of this piece, ensuring it'll fit right in with any collection of classic pipes.- Jeffery Sitts
