Rattray's: Black Sheep (107) (9mm)
Product Number: 002-599-3163
Like Rattray's "99" design, the Scottish marque's "107" is a compact bent Apple of stout proportions and Nosewarmer dimensions. The "107" is a touch longer, made more slender by the stretched saddle stem, but maintains a good deal of substance while being conveniently pocket-sized. It remains comfortable in hand, and the stout proportions of the shank do well to match the bowl's robust, low-set waistline — meaning there's plenty of insulation around the chamber and room to accommodate a 9mm filter in the tenon and mortise.The dress-pipe aesthetic is one that typically combines a formal, ebony stain with a flashy, metallic accent. It's a color palette characterized by sophistication and elegance — pairing perfectly with a tuxedo and well-suited to a black-tie affair — and was pioneered by the introduction of Dunhill's Dress series in 1973. Since then the classy motif has been celebrated by pipe makers worldwide, and Rattray's Black Sheep line perfectly embodies the refined style, dressing this pipe in a smooth, jet-black stain and accenting the shank end with a metal band of concise texture. -Truett Smith
