Peterson: Natural Spigot (230) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-45112
With a slightly tapered and more rounded style of bowl, Peterson's "230" bent Billiard forgoes the cylindrical, tubular shaping cues typically seen from the Irish marque. That said, Peterson's conventionally muscular style of shank and transition is still clearly evident. Despite these hearty proportions, however, the "230" remains a compact pipe in terms of overall length, well suited to hands-free clenching and an excellent choice for travel.
Along with their signature shaping style, Peterson of Dublin is renowned for their silverwork. The journey of becoming a Peterson silversmith requires years of training and personal mentorship from the factory's senior craftsmen, and the superlative results testify to such a demanding, lengthy process — each worker having engineered his own mandrel to the extent that every metal accoutrement made is imprinted with the subtle, personal style of the one who machined it. Peterson's Spigot line best showcases the Irish marque's signature silver treatment, fitting sterling silver around both the shank end and stem base in a spigot mount arrangement. The construction provides further reinforcement and durability and highlights even more sterling silver than would be used for a standard military mount. Presented here in the Natural Spigot finish, the flashy, regal metal is paired to a vibrant, honey-blonde contrast stain to further the vivid aesthetic.-Truett Smith
