Rattray's: Sanctuary Grey (15) (9mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-599-5746
A hearty, Calabash-like take on the bent Dublin, Rattray's "15" design is marked by its deep bend, palm-filling bowl, and domed rim. It makes for a comfortable jaw-hanger that, while impressively compact in length thanks to the tightly curling transition, still offers a strong sense of substance in hand and plenty of chamber depth surrounded by generous insulating walls.
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
