Peterson: Aran Smooth Nickel Mounted (86) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-43772
While both of Peterson’s “87” and “86” shapes are straight Apples, this “86” hews closer to the classic English pipe chart standard. Where the “87” adds some of the Irish marque’s signature muscularity about the shank and transition, this piece opts for a more svelte disposition, the shank running sleek and streamlined into the plump bowl. For those interested in a more trimly styled Peterson, the “86” Apple offers a touch less robustness and maintains a thoroughly traditional appeal.
One of Peterson’s most traditional finishes, the Aran presents a color palette of chocolatey stain and jet-black stem. In the smooth iteration, it highlights the briar’s natural grain pattern with handsome reservation — not distracting from the form’s shape yet, at the same time, offering enough definition and detail to remain intriguing and individual, accented here with a flashy nickel band to add some formal panache and elegant appeal.-Truett Smith
