Rattray's: Black Sheep (109) (9mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-599-5845
Rattray's "109" design is a moderately sized, thoroughly traditional Billiard that displays an upright bowl with a sturdy heel underneath. It fits in well to the Scottish marque's classic shaping style and is one of several straight Billiards featured on Rattray's shape chart. The "109" is significantly smaller than the massive "147" and a tad larger than the compact "100" Nosewarmer, making it a perfect, middle-of-the-road choice for those who prefer traditional shapes with well-balanced proportions.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
