Rattray's: Samhain Green (48) (9mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-599-5985
A sweeping bent Dublin rendition, the "48" shape from Rattray's presents a smooth-flowing gesture through the shank, transition, and bowl. A fluid curvature defines the transition, calling to mind traditional Calabash designs, but the bowl flares outward in classic Dublin fashion. Marked by comfortable balance and respectable chamber depth, this is a pipe of jaw-hanging potential — especially appealing to those who appreciate filtered pipes, with the stout shank drilled to accommodate a 9mm filter.
Like Rattray's Beltane's Fire series, the Samhain line celebrates one of the four Gaelic seasonal festivals, specifically the one marking the end of the harvest and the beginning of winter: Samhain (pronounced "sah-win") or, as it's most colloquially known, Halloween. The festival falls on November 1st but the celebration traditionally begins on the night of October 31st, falling halfway between the autumn equinox and the winter solstice, and as with Beltane, bonfires are common during Samhain. For this commemorative Halloween line, the Scottish marque presents pipes in an extra-dark sandblast contrasted by a metallic accent band and an acrylic stem of intermingling black and emerald hues that match the smooth-polished rim for a deep, eldritch motif.-Truett Smith
