Peterson: Flame Grain Spigot (03) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-48628
Peterson's "03" bent Apple maintains the extra-stout shank and robust transition that combine to define the Peterson aesthetic, while trading the Irish marque's typically tubular bowl style with the rounded form of a classic Apple. The plumpness of the bowl translates well to the hearty transition and shank, lending the composition a tight-knit, muscular aesthetic. It's one of the marque's most charming, well-known shapes, and it's easy to see why — whether hanging from the jaw or filling the palm, it's a versatile smoker that seamlessly marries traditional appeal with Peterson's recognizable personality.
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 rendition — featuring the Irish marque's superlative silver work at the shank end and push style tenon. These fitments not only provide flashy accenting touches, but they also have added practicality: 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 is a perfect example of one of Peterson's higher-tiered offerings.-Jeffery Sitts
