Peterson: Dublin Filter Smooth (B11) Fishtail (9mm)
Product Number: 002-029-48590
Though a part of Peterson's standard shape chart, the Irish marque's "B" shapes fall a bit outside of convention, each design being more eccentric compared to traditional pipe chart standards. In the case of the "B11," the Irish marque presents a flat-bottomed bent Brandy, affording the practical comforts of a bent pipe alongside the sturdy, upright posture of a sitter. The strongly tapered bowl showcases Peterson's voluptuous shaping style and also ensures an easy, ergonomic feel in hand.
Peterson has offered a line of filtered pipes since 1947, evolving over the decades in name and finish. It's remained consistent, though, since 1997 as the Dublin Filter series — each pipe within the line being drilled to hold a 9mm filter, (Peterson's proprietary charcoal filters being offered in packs of 150 and 40 count boxes). Often, when a marque features filtered versions of their standard shapes, certain designs must be slightly altered to accommodate wider drilling; however, Peterson's signature aesthetic hews toward more robust shanks and transitions, making for a seamless cross-over between filtered and non-filtered renditions of the same shape. Presented in a smoky contrast stain and twin nickel accent rings, the Dublin Filter line displays a handsome aesthetic that remains both striking and traditionally reserved.-Truett Smith
