Peterson: Flame Grain Spigot (15) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-45951
Peterson's "15" is one of their lighter and trimmer straight Billiards, noticeably forgoing the Irish marque's conventionally robust and stout proportions. The "15" leans more towards the classic style often seen in vintage French briars with its shank and stem extended and slightly trimmed up to create a more slender, svelte appearance. It also scales back their signature muscular aesthetic and is an ideal option for anyone who appreciates Peterson's rich history and approach to pipemaking, but who prefers their briars on the slimmer side.
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. This particular example is made all the more striking in the Spigot rendition — featuring the Irish marque's superlative silver work at the shank end and push style tenon. These fitments not only provide flashy accenting touches, but they also have added practicality: the spigot mount arrangement adding durability and enabling stem removal while the pipe is still hot. It all combines for a striking, austere aesthetic and is a perfect example of one of Peterson's higher-tiered offerings.-Jeffery Sitts
