Peterson: Burren (230) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-45987
With a slightly tapered and more rounded style of bowl, Peterson's "230" bent Billiard forgoes the cylindrical, tubular shaping cues typically seen from the Irish marque. That said, Peterson's conventionally muscular style of shank and transition is still clearly evident. Despite these hearty proportions, however, the "230" remains a compact pipe in terms of overall length, well suited to hands-free clenching and an excellent choice for travel.
Named for an expansive region of limestone located on Ireland's west coast, the Burren series from Peterson pairs a natural finish and crisp sandblast to a nickel mount and caramel-swirled acrylic stem. The pale, russet-tinged color palette resembles the line's namesake, and the Burren is the only Peterson series to feature virgin briar — intended to develop a warm patina with prolonged use. The military mount allows the pipe to be disassembled even while hot, and the bright nickel will contrast all the more handsomely as this piece darkens over time.-Truett Smith
