Rattray's: Mary Grey Smooth (163) (9mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-599-4314
Rattray's "161," "162," and "163" shapes are all exclusive to the Scottish marque's Mary series, defined by trim, lightweight shapes fitted to sleek, slightly elongated stems for a slender, streamlined nature that's perfect for quick, on-the-go smoking sessions. The "163" is a straight Billiard rendition with a slender, upright bowl matching the proportions of the shank and stem. Said stem is proportionately longer than would be considered standard, likening this piece to the classic Bing's Billiard design, only without the slightly longer shank.
Many of Rattray's shapes accommodate 9mm filters, often resulting in designs of quite a muscular aesthetic, especially throughout the shank. The Scottish marque's Mary line, however, offers a much more slender design while still accepting a 9mm filter. For these pipes, the shank is shaped to perfectly fit a filter without adding extra heft thanks to a reverse-tenon construction, allowing for slender shaping while maintaining durability. Offered across three distinct shapes in three finishes, Rattray's Mary pipes are perfect for travel and short smoking sessions, with this particular piece dressed in a smooth finish and smoky, grey stain.-Truett Smith
