Rattray's: Marlin (1) (9mm)
Product Number: 002-599-3248
Rattray's "1" design is a hybrid shape of sorts, combining the voluptuous, tapering bowl of a Brandy with the paneled architecture of a Foursquare. Such a combination offers a full-bodied posture in hand that's made all the more intriguing and sturdy thanks to the rigid panels and accompanying ridgelines. The saddle stem helps place even more visual weight on the tall, muscular bowl, though the stem's lithe bend and the angled shank should allow for an effortless clench when smoking hands free.
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
