Rattray's: Marlin (9)
Product Number: 002-599-1716
A classic bent Apple, the "9" shape from Rattray's is one of the Scottish marque's more slender designs since it isn't engineered to accommodate a 9mm filter. As such, the shank is more streamlined, flowing sinuously into a rounded bow that offers in-hand plumpness without dominating the profile. It's one of Rattray's more compact and lightweight pieces, perfect for those drawn to traditional shapes and who prefer pipes without filters.
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.-Truett Smith
