Rattray's: Butcher's Boy Grey (23) (9mm)
Product Number: 002-599-2251
The "23" design from Rattray's is a remarkably plump and highly gestural bent Apple shape, its bowl prioritizing width over height. It's a stout-bodied interpretation, the bowl imbued with a Pot-like breadth to its chamber while the shank-and-stem combination displays a pronounced S-curve, though not as deeply bent as the Scottish marque's "19" bent Apple. The stem and shank of the "23" differ slightly, though, depending on the series it's found in: In the 2,000 Year Bog Oakline, it features a significantly thicker shank paired to a half-bent, tapered stem. However, this Butcher's Boy example displays an abbreviated shank fitted to more slender stems of nosewarmer and demi-Churchwarden lengths.
Rattray's Butcher's Boy series is one of the Scottish marque's most versatile lines, offering pieces that come complete with two mouthpieces — one of standard size and the other of Churchwarden length. Such a design ensures that no matter your mood or circumstance, you can fit the stummel with the mouthpiece best suited for your needs. The elongated Churchwarden stem promotes a comfortable smoking posture for peaceful, relaxing smoking sessions while the standard length mouthpiece is ideal for daily use when on-the-go.- Jeffery Sitts
