Peterson: Christmas 2019 (X220) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-44774
The "X220" bent Billiard features some of Peterson's classic shaping cues, such as a thick shank and hearty proportions, but it substitutes a bowl that tapers subtly toward the rim in place of one marked by the Irish marque's conventionally upright and tubular aesthetic. It's a considerably robust, full-bodied take on the timeless form and is among the largest of Peterson's bent Billiard renditions. That said, while the bold shaping results in a handful of briar, such boldness and substance is balanced out by a generously bent shank and stem combination.
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.-Jeffery Sitts
