Peterson: Cara Sandblasted (440) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-46798
Perhaps the most classically English straight Billiard within Peterson's portfolio, the "440" forgoes the extra-hearty proportions typically employed by the Irish marque, instead focusing on a traditional relationship between bowl and stem. Alluringly handsome and ever timeless, it's a pipe that could fit into any decade and is appropriate for any situation, the extra length of the stem accentuating the profile's sleek lines.
The Cara series from Peterson presents the classic ebony and silver dress pipe motif. Like a formal tuxedo, the black finish is contrasted elegantly by a sterling silver band at the shank end, the crisp flash of silver accentuated further by the stummel's sandblasted texture. The Irish marque is renowned for its use of sterling — an accenting material that's been intertwined with pipemaking for over a century — and each silversmith spends years mentoring under the factory's senior craftsmen, having developed a decades long tradition of quality silverwork. The Cara series, named after the Irish word for "friend," boasts the classic, stylish aesthetic all at an impressively accessible price point for silver-accented pieces, making for a true smoking companion.-Truett Smith
