Rattray's: Black Sheep (108) (9mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-599-5438
A particularly classic rendition of the straight Apple, Rattray's "108" design beautifully exemplifies the balanced proportional standards of the traditional shape, fitting in well to English interpretations of the pipe chart archetype. There's a touch of added muscularity about the shank to accommodate a 9mm filter, and it pairs naturally with the bowl's rounded curves, which both insulate the chamber well and provide a substantial fit in hand.The dress-pipe aesthetic is one that typically combines a formal, ebony stain with a flashy, metallic accent. It's a color palette characterized by sophistication and elegance — pairing perfectly with a tuxedo and well-suited to a black-tie affair — and was pioneered by the introduction of Dunhill's Dress series in 1973. Since then the classy motif has been celebrated by pipe makers worldwide, and Rattray's Black Sheep line perfectly embodies the refined style, dressing this pipe in a smooth, jet-black stain and accenting the shank end with a metal band of concise texture. -Truett Smith
