Peterson: Flame Grain Silver Cap (606) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-46918
While Peterson's signature shaping style is often described as muscular and robust, the Irish marque's portfolio boasts a diverse range of sizes within the same general design: The iconic "05" Bell/Calabash is made all the more grand in the "XL315"; the "03" bent Apple receives more palm-filling substance in the "XL02"; and the "65" bent Billiard is a trimmer option compared to the "X220" or "XL90." Such is the case with Peterson's "606" and "608" Pots — both display a similar profile and cater to the shape's characteristically broad and squat bowl, but the "608" here is scaled down a touch, making for a more lightweight, trimmer version of the "606."
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 finish draws attention to the silver cap and accent band, fashioned by the Sallynoggin factory's expert silversmiths, each one having spent years of mentorship underneath Peterson's senior craftsmen. The metal provides a formal, austere presentation, and the cap also protects the rim from charring, making for a pipe that's as eye-catching as it is practical.-Truett Smith
