Rattray's: Marlin (2) (9mm)
Product Number: 002-599-2988
One of Rattray's larger bent Billiards, based on relative proportions and chamber depth, the "2" shape is a hearty pipe that still maintains a conveniently compact profile in terms of length. The shank is considerably stout, accommodating a 9mm filter, and that muscularity continues into the bowl — its firm uprightness contributing to a bold heel and substantial in-hand feel. A versatile pipe, Rattray's "2" is a travel-friendly piece that still offers lengthy smoking sessions.
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.-Truett Smith
