Rattray's: Marlin (6) (9mm)
Product Number: 002-599-2956
Rattray's "6" design is a stout, muscular take on the bent Bulldog, displaying a low-slung, gestural bowl with a firm heel underneath. Though this design retains the Bulldog's characteristic diamond shank, the bowl's waist either displays a subtle ridgeline or a pair of beadlines depending on the series it belongs to. The "6" serves as a bent alternative to the Scottish marque's "41" straight Bulldog and is slightly smaller than their "40" bent Bulldog design in terms of overall length and chamber capacity. The downturned stem of the "6" is ideal for pipe smokers who prefer clenching, but also appreciate the structured appearance and timelessness of the Bulldog shape.
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
