Rattray's: Dark Reign Grey (120) (9mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-599-5234
The Dark Reign line from Rattray's features six shapes exclusive to the series: the "120," "121," "122," "123," "124," and "125" designs. All differ in exact form and dimensions, but all are united by the Dark Reign's formal color palette and accents. Offered here is the "120" Rhodesian, marked by stout muscularity and a distinct forward cant. The bowl caters to the traditional shape's convention of tapering above and below the waistline, and in Rattray's rendition, that waistline is defined by a crisp ridgeline instead of beadlines. Fitted with a saddle stem, the shank contributes to the overall form's muscularity, leading into the forward-canted bowl, which likens the design to the Dark Reign's "121" Devil Anse, with similar proportions and a similar stance, but with the structured aesthetic of a Rhodesian bowl.
Marked by chrome accents and a dark stain, the Dark Reign series from Rattray's features a number of shapes in a striking, dress pipe-like motif. The line is most defined by its rim guard, matching the shank-end accent and adding to the presentation's contrasting palette, while also protecting the briar from being charred over years of tobacco lighting. This example wears the line's smoky grey finish, offering subtle grain definition for visual intrigue, as opposed to the traditional dress pipe's all-black hue.-Truett Smith
