Peterson: Christmas 2019 (304) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-44734
The "304" shares both style and history with the "306": Both designs were introduced to Peterson's shape chart in 1992 and were the first new System pipes since the "301," "302," and "303" were featured in the 1978 catalog. The "304" and "306" also boast flattened heels, allowing them to sit upright while still offering the comfortable posture of a bent pipe. While most Peterson shapes change numbers when featured outside the System line, these two flat-bottomed forms remain constant across series. Presented here is the "304," being a touch smaller than the "306," catering to pipesmokers' personal preferences.
Since 2009, Peterson has released an annual, special edition Christmas pipe to celebrate the holiday season. Compared to previous years', which often incorporated striking red-and-green motifs, the 2019 edition presents a handsomely reserved, subtly festive palette. A burgundy rustication adorns the stummel, complemented by a copper military mount and matching stem logo — the copper's warmer tone offering a cozier aesthetic compared to, say, the brighter, harder flash of silver. The palette's warmth is finalized by an acrylic stem of cumberland hues, encouraging evenings of relaxation with family and friends.-Truett Smith
