Rattray's: Sanctuary Grey (150) (9mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-599-5745
Also available in Rattray's Brave Heart series, the "150" shape is a robust bent Apple design from the Scottish marques. It's a taller, more upward-tapering version of the classic shape-chart standard, offering ample chamber depth and being quite voluptuous and substantial in hand. The shank continues the bowl's muscularity, stepping down slightly to the tapered stem, which is drilled to accommodate a 9mm filter and displays a stout and robust demeanor.
For many, pipe smoking is a refuge of sorts, a retreat away from life's busyness and a safe haven that encourages peacefulness, contemplation, and relaxation. Rattray's Sanctuary series honors this aspect with a line of pipes dressed in smooth finishes and accented by metal fitments along the shank end and stem base — the former etched with Rattray's ancient triskel logo. While such accoutrements mirror the aesthetic of a spigot mount, this Sanctuary pipe still maintains a standard mortise and tenon arrangement, drilled to accommodate a 9mm filter, and it's found here in the line's Grey finish, highlighting the briar's smooth grain in an alluring, smoky stain.-Truett Smith
