Peterson: Aran Rusticated (22) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-45706
A lengthier, more slender Billiard from Peterson, the "22" forgoes the Irish marque's conventionally robust and muscular aesthetic, presenting a comparatively unique shape within Peterson's portfolio. It's a take on the design affectionately known as "Bing's Billiard," named in honor of the pipes often seen smoked by Bing Crosby. In essence, the form is marked by a Liverpool's elongated shank, which is paired, not to an abbreviated stem as would be normal, but to one of standard length, stretching the profile and accentuating its streamlined nature. For those interested in Peterson's quality craftsmanship but prefer more svelte, lightweight takes on classic shapes, the "22" comfortably fits that bill.
One of Peterson's most traditional finishes, the Aran presents a color palette of chocolatey stain and jet-black stem. In this piece, the extra-craggy application presents raised peaks and dimpled grooves for a stimulating texture in hand, reminiscent of Peterson's rustications of old, and offers a no-nonsense aesthetic that's perfect for rugged, everyday use.-Truett Smith
