Peterson: Summertime 2019 (XL02) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-43436
The "XL02" is, in essence, a fuller-bodied approach to the beloved "03" bent Apple, with added muscularity to the shank and transition. The visual weight of the shank relative to that of the bowl is a hallmark of Peterson's approach to shaping and distinguishes it from what we consider the classic English design of pipemaking. It's a great example of the marque's signature aesthetic — the stout shank and voluptuous bowl blending well with the slender angle of the stem and tight transition.
The Summertime series is an annual release from Peterson, unique to the year but always displaying a bright and sunny aesthetic. It's designed to pair well with the warmer months of the year, prompting outdoor smokes with your favorite summer blends. For 2019, the line showcases a warm, chocolate-stained rustication, with the peaks of the textured finish colored a touch lighter to contrast. Meanwhile, the vibrant, tangerine-hued acrylic stem is rivaled only by the flashy nickel mount that adorns each piece.-Jeffery Sitts
