Rattray's: Dark Ale (110) (9mm)
Product Number: 002-599-2142
A traditional Poker design, the "110" shape from Rattray's features a cylindrical bowl and a raised transition. The shank is angled slightly to account for the stem's bend, ensuring the piece remains balanced enough to sit upright, supported further by the bowl's forward cant. It's the perfect pipe for those drawn to classic English shapes and who are interested in a piece that can be set down without fear of tipping over. Plus, the slight bend makes for a more comfortable smoking posture when clenched — offsetting the form's stout proportions.
Inspired by the brown ales that originated in England and Scotland, Rattray's Dark Ale series presents pipes in a color palette similar to those dark beers. The smoky, dark walnut stain remains just light enough to still expose the briar's grain pattern, reminiscent of the namesake imbibement and not as dark as, say, a stout or porter beer. Complementing the smooth stain, then, is a cumberland-hued acrylic stem, the similarly dark hues separated by a flashy chrome band for handsome, accenting flash.-Truett Smith
