Rattray's: Craggy Root (57) (9mm)
Product Number: 002-599-2346
A robust and sturdy straight Billiard, Rattray's "57" design perfectly exemplifies the Scottish marque's approach to shape chart standards and ability to imbue shapes with hearty proportions while keeping the overall dimensions well balanced. The tall bowl sits proudly poised and upright at the end of the stout shank, which has been drilled to accommodate 9mm filters, while the stem gradually tapers toward the lip button. The "57" is a large Billiard interpretation, significantly more muscular and deep chambered compared to Rattray's "100" and "109" designs, but it remains smaller than the massive "148." It's an ideal choice for pipe smokers who favor timeless, traditional shapes but with some added substance throughout.
Appropriately named, Rattray's Craggy Root series is characterized by its rugged, rusticated finish, which initially appears to be a low-profile sandblast. While it offers a wealth of intriguing texture, the rustication remains light-depth to preserve the lines and shaping of the design's silhouette. The smooth-polished rim offers some tasteful, textural contrast and is finished in a warm, auburn stain that harmonizes well with the reddish undertones of the rusticated bowl. The bright metal accent band provides brilliant contrast against the rest of the piece's dark color palette and adds a touch of refinement to the overall composition.- Jeffery Sitts
