Peterson: Racing Green (150) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-44345
Peterson's "150" straight Bulldog is a pert, upright rendition that fits in perfectly with the Irish firm's characteristically muscular shaping style. It's quite the forthright take on the classic English shape, but in keeping with the marque's tradition, it features an incredibly robust, crisp diamond shank. The bowl wears a set of well-defined beadlines and displays a firm heel underneath, though it remains a touch leaner than other, more squat renditions of the shape, making the "150" an ideal choice for those who prefer a taller, trimmer style of Bulldog bowl.
The classic dress pipe motif combines a glossy black stain with sterling silver. Pioneered by Dunhill's Dress finish and well represented in Peterson's Cara series, the aesthetic plays with contrasting colors, like the black-and-white palette of a tuxedo, to display an elegant, formal presentation. In the Racing Green line, Peterson adds a distinctly Irish spin on the dress pipe finish. Introduced in 1996, the series showcases the superlative silverwork of the Sallynoggin factory's smiths but, instead of a glossy, ebony stain, Peterson contrasts the silver against their signature, dark emerald stain. The combination still exudes the regal disposition associated with the dress pipe look but with a decidedly more "Peterson" appeal.-Jeffery Sitts
