Rattray's: Craggy Root (56) (9mm)
Product Number: 002-599-2789
The "56" is Rattray's take on the Lovat shape, and it's the only rendition on the Scottish marque's current shape chart. Boldly designed and traditionally proportioned, it's a timeless interpretation of the classic form, catering to standard English and French shaping, but there's a touch more muscularity lent to the elongated shank, ensuring room for a 9mm filter in the mortise and emboldening the overall profile. Fans of iconic pipe shapes will appreciate the reserved and traditional characteristics of Rattray's "56," and its generous chamber depth and substantial presence ensure delightful smoking sessions.
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.-Truett Smith
