Peterson: Ashford (05) Fishtail

Product Number: 002-029-45980

Perhaps the most iconic of all Peterson shapes, the "05" Calabash features a bowl flaring trumpet-like at the rim, a high transition to the shank, and a shank that is wide, muscular, and substantial in hand. Its wide base and smooth curvature, along with its easy-to-grasp, cinched waistline, have been prominent features admired by generations of smokers. Among Peterson's oldest and most popular shapes, the "05" epitomizes the Peterson design aesthetic.

Named after Ashford Castle, a 13th-century edifice in western Ireland later upgraded in the Victorian era (and now a five-star, luxury hotel), Peterson's Ashford series dresses pipes in a smooth, dark walnut stain and pairs them with a cumberland-hued acrylic stem to match. Contrasting the smoky color palette, a sterling silver mount adds further elegance and bespeaks Peterson's renowned silverwork — each Sallynoggin smith having spent years of mentorship under the factory's senior craftsmen. The Ashford presents a more rustic version of the black-and-silver dress pipe motif while still retaining a strong sense of formal class, and as an added factoid, Ashford Castle was a prominent filming site for John Ford's Academy Award winning The Quiet Man in 1952 — a bit of trivia for John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara aficionados.
