Rattray's: 2022 Pipe of the Year Black Sandblasted (218/300) (9mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-599-4995
Founded by Scottish tobacconist Charles Rattray in 1903, Rattray's is a venerated, prestigious tobacconist, known for their iconic pipe tobaccos and accompanying pipe series. Like many pipe manufacturers, Rattray's produces a distinctive, limited-edition shape for their Pipe of the Year. This 2022 rendition takes the form of a sinuously bent Apple with a flattened heel for sturdy sitting, combining the smoking balance and comfort of a bent pipe with the convenience of a desk pipe. The shank end and stem base feature metallic accents, offering the chic elegance of a spigot mount but with a standard mortise and tenon drilled to accommodate a 9mm filter, and the shank accent is etched with a Celtic depiction of a tiger, honoring 2022 as the Chinese Zodiac's Year of the Tiger in Rattray's signature Scottish style. The stummel of this particular example wears a black stain and a sandblasted finish for traditional style and handsome grain definition.--Davin Hylton
