Peterson: Flame Grain Spigot with Silver Cap (150) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-47392
Peterson's "150" straight Bulldog is a pert, upright rendition that fits in perfectly with the Irish firm's characteristically muscular shaping style. It's quite the forthright take on the classic English shape, but in keeping with the marque's tradition, it features an incredibly robust, crisp diamond shank. The bowl wears a set of well-defined beadlines and displays a firm heel underneath, though it remains a touch leaner than other, more squat renditions of the shape, making the "150" an ideal choice for those who prefer a taller, trimmer style of Bulldog bowl.
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 with Silver Cap rendition — featuring the Irish marque's superlative silver work at the rim, shank end, and push style tenon. These fitments not only provide flashy accenting touches, but they also have added practicality: The rim cap protects against charring, and 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 features the most silver accoutrements available on a Peterson pipe.- Jeffery Sitts
