Peterson: Flame Grain (221) P-Lip
Product Number: 002-029-45884
While the bent Billiard is a classic shape, rendered by countless companies, Peterson's "221" iteration is readily recognized as the work of the Irish marque because of the added visual weight attributed to the shank and transition. Such extra heft stretches the heel and provides more palm-filling substance. It makes for an eye-catching, muscular form in profile yet remains well balanced thanks to the curled transition and bent stem out back.
Peterson's esteemed Flame Grain series consists of pipes crafted from select quality briar, carefully chosen for their choice grain orientation. The designation represents one of Peterson's highest grades, and in this example the lively array of grain is brought out by a smoky, black walnut contrast stain. The darker finish is paired to a jet-black stem, drawing focus to the sterling silver accent band around the shank. Peterson is renowned for their silver work, each accoutrement handcrafted by one of the Sallynoggin factory's expert silversmiths. The combination of superlative grain and esteemed silverwork make this Flame Grain piece a perfect example of one of Peterson's higher-tiered offerings.-Truett Smith
