Peterson: Racing Green (80s) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-44628
Peterson's "80S" is a muscular take on the classic bent Bulldog, featuring the Irish marque's penchant for robust, stout proportions with its thick, sturdy shank bearing almost as much visual weight as the bowl. In a way, it's a diamond-shanked companion to the Irish marque's signature "999" Rhodesian, both designs featuring a squat bowl, the same low-slung disposition, and a set of beadlines around their tapered rims just above the tight transition. The "80S" also serves as a bent alternative to Peterson's "150" straight Bulldog for smokers who prefer a downturned stem for easy clenching, yet prefer the masculine look and feel of such a timeless design and the iconic Peterson aesthetic.
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
