Rattray's: Samhain Red (37) (9mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-599-3611
In Rattray's typical style, this "37" Billiard design is a robust, full-bodied rendition of the shape-chart standard. The proportions are well balanced, yet the bowl maintains a healthy dominance in profile, with a tall posture and deep chamber within. For those who prefer hearty interpretations of classic shapes, Rattray's delivers with the "37" Billiard — going double for pipe smokers who also prefer 9mm filters.
Like Rattray's Beltane's Fire series, the Samhain line celebrates one of the four Gaelic seasonal festivals, specifically the one marking the end of the harvest and the beginning of winter: Samhain (pronounced "sah-win") or, as it's most colloquially known, Halloween. The festival falls on November 1st but the celebration traditionally begins on the night of October 31st, falling halfway between the autumn equinox and the winter solstice, and as with Beltane, bonfires are common during Samhain. For this commemorative Halloween line, the Scottish marque presents pipes in an extra-dark sandblast contrasted by a metallic accent band and an acrylic stem of intermingling black and scarlet hues that match the smooth-polished rim for a deep, smoldering motif.-Truett Smith
