Rattray's: Marlin (11)
Product Number: 002-599-2356
Rattray's "11" shape is a thoroughly traditional take on the classic Zulu. While it exudes grace and poise, this rendition is also a tad more exaggerated than most Zulu interpretations: The downward taper of the Dublin bowl is more dramatic, the transition is more sweeping in gesture than the norm, and the shank-and-stem combination highlights its implied movement with a lens-shaped cross section. Even with these more exaggerated cues, Rattray's "11" still retains the sleek sinuosity and elegant fluidity of the traditional Zulu, displaying a beautifully flowing profile.
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
