Peterson: Racing Green (606) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-42930
Peterson's "606" is a straight Pot in typical Irish style, exemplifying the company's penchant for robust shanks and hearty proportions, while the thick insulating walls exude plenty of muscularity on their own. With a wide tobacco chamber, broad bowl dimensions, and a transition that emphasizes the shape of the bowl with subtle cheeking, it completes a unified composition that's full of stout substance and an impressive in-hand feel.
The classic dress pipe motif combines a glossy black stain with sterling silver. Pioneered by Dunhill's Dress finish and well represented in Peterson's Cara series, the aesthetic plays with contrasting colors, like the black-and-white palette of a tuxedo, to display an elegant, formal presentation. In the Racing Green line, Peterson adds a distinctly Irish spin on the dress pipe finish. Introduced in 1996, the series showcases the superlative silverwork of the Sallynoggin factory's smiths but, instead of a glossy, ebony stain, Peterson contrasts the silver against their signature, dark emerald stain. The combination still exudes the regal disposition associated with the dress pipe look but with a decidedly more "Peterson" appeal.- Chuck Stanion
