Peterson: Summertime 2019 (999) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-43488
Defined by a Bulldog bowl and round shank, the Rhodesian is a classic shape that's enjoyed a place on traditional pipe charts for well over a century. On Peterson's chart, the age-old form is designated as the "999," showcasing everything pipesmokers love about the traditional shape — hard lines around the bowl; a tapering rim; and a stout, muscular disposition in hand — while also boasting the Irish marque's conventional shaping cues. The bowl tapers above and below the design's defining beadlines, while the rim barely rises above the transition thanks to the extra heft lent to the shank — a signature stylistic element of Peterson.
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.-Truett Smith
