Peterson: Aran Smooth Nickel Mounted (53) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-43713
While it doesn't appear nearly as often as, say, the "01" or "05" shapes in the marque's lineup, Peterson's "53" Lovat is undoubtedly one of my favorite designs from the venerable Irish firm. The marque's signature stout style of transition and shank is, of course, well preserved — adding a fair bit of charm in profile. What strikes me most about the shape, however, is the compact proportions gained by its "sawed-off" shank, which, to my eye at least, seems to augment those aforementioned stout proportions.- Andrew Wike
