Peterson: Silver Cap Sandblasted (X220) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-48425
The "X220" bent Billiard features some of Peterson's classic shaping cues, such as a thick shank and hearty proportions, but it substitutes a bowl that tapers subtly toward the rim in place of one marked by the Irish marque's conventionally upright and tubular aesthetic. It's a considerably robust, full-bodied take on the timeless form and is among the largest of Peterson's bent Billiard renditions. That said, while the bold shaping results in a handful of briar, such boldness and substance is balanced out by a generously bent shank and stem combination.
As part of the Silver Cap line, this particular piece showcases the stunning silverwork Peterson is known for. The Irish marque prides itself on its silver-adorned pipes, and each accoutrement is crafted by one of the Sallynoggin factory's smiths, each having gone through years of mentorship under Peterson's senior craftsmen. Here, that expert quality is featured both around the shank and on the rim, adding a flashy contrast against the chocolate-hued sandblast, while also protecting the rim from charring.-Jeffery Sitts
