Rattray's: Joy Sandblasted Meerschaum Lined (8M) (9mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-599-4244
A lithe and slender bent Billiard, Rattray's "8" design is a classically inclined interpretation, one that conforms perfectly to any traditional pipe chart. It displays a deeper bend and a more pronounced S-curve compared to the Scottish marque's "106" while offering more compact, pocket-friendly dimensions than the extra-large "148." The downturned stem on the "8" provides a pleasant degree of balance and enables this pipe to be clenched with ease, resulting in a remarkably versatile and convenient smoker. It's found here in the Joy series, which features pipes with either a standard, briar chamber or one that's lined with meerschaum — this example being of the latter, lined variety, as denoted by the "M" stamp next to the shape number.
Rattray's Joy series presents a convenient and highly practical package that's perfect for new pipe smokers and those who travel frequently. The line consists of two shapes, the "8" bent Billiard and the "113" straight Billiard, and offers both designs with either a standard, briar chamber or one lined with meerschaum. A trim, metal band adorns the stem base of each piece, providing a subtle, yet tasteful accenting touch that complements the line's traditional finishes and color palettes. This piece comes complete with its own zippered travel case, along with a Czech pipe tool, pipe cleaners, and a pack of 9mm filters to ensure you're fully equipped for all manner of portable piping.-Truett Smith
