Peterson: Christmas 2019 (999) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-45422
Defined by a Bulldog bowl and round shank, the Rhodesian is a classic shape that's enjoyed a place on traditional pipe charts for well over a century. On Peterson's chart, the age-old form is designated as the "999," showcasing everything pipesmokers love about the traditional shape — hard lines around the bowl; a tapering rim; and a stout, muscular disposition in hand — while also boasting the Irish marque's conventional shaping cues. The bowl tapers above and below the design's defining beadlines, while the rim barely rises above the transition thanks to the extra heft lent to the shank — a signature stylistic element of Peterson.
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
