Peterson: Jekyll & Hyde (B10) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-48308
Like all of Peterson's "B" family shapes, which merge elements of several designs to create attractive and unique hybrids, the Irish marque's "B10" occupies a pretty eccentric spot — not exactly a classic shape, but featuring classical components to its overall design. If you look hard enough, you can find hints of the bent Dublin, Calabash, and Rhodesian shapes alike, yet the overall design still comes off cohesive and well-knit.
Succeeding 2012's introduction of the popular Dracula line, Peterson released the Jekyll & Hyde in 2015, paying homage to yet another piece of classic literature. The series draws inspiration from Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson's 1886 gothic novella Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. The story follows Gabriel John Utterson, a London lawyer, and his investigation of Dr. Henry Jekyll and the mysteriously nefarious Edward Hyde. Spoiler alert: Both Jekyll and Hyde are the same person, the doctor having created a serum intended to dampen the dark side of his personality, but the potion accidentally transforms him into Mr. Hyde, the cruel personification of his inner evil. Like Jekyll's dual personalities, Peterson's Jekyll & Hyde series features two distinct finishes — a smooth, well-kept, ruby-tinged stain adorns the Dr. Jekyll side, while the craggy, dark-stained rustication of the other symbolizes the malevolent Mr. Hyde.-Jeffery Sitts
