Peterson: Aran Smooth Nickel Mounted (05) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-44002
Perhaps the most iconic of all Peterson shapes, the "05" Calabash features a bowl flaring trumpet-like at the rim, a high transition to the shank, and a shank that is wide, muscular, and substantial in hand. Its wide base and smooth curvature, along with its easy-to-grasp, cinched waistline, have been prominent features admired by generations of smokers. Among Peterson’s oldest and most popular shapes, the "05" epitomizes the Peterson design aesthetic.
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.- Chuck Stanion
