Rattray's: Marlin (3) (9mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-599-4978
Featuring a robust shank and a bulbous bowl, Rattray's "3" shape is a hearty take on the straight Apple. The stout proportions of the shank do well to match the bowl's broad, low-set waistline — meaning there's plenty of insulation around the chamber and room to accommodate a 9mm filter in the tenon and mortise. While the "3" is not as lengthy as the Scottish marque's "30" Apple, hewing closer to their "108," this design offers a more substantial presence in hand and a deeper tobacco chamber.
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
