Peterson: Silver Cap Sandblasted (999) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-49915
Defined by a Bulldog bowl and round shank, the Rhodesian is a classic shape that's enjoyed a place on traditional pipe charts for well over a century. On Peterson's chart, the age-old form is designated as the "999," showcasing everything pipe smokers love about the traditional shape — hard lines around the bowl; a tapering rim; and a stout, muscular disposition in hand — while also boasting the Irish marque's conventional shaping cues. The bowl tapers above and below the design's defining beadlines, while the rim barely rises above the transition thanks to the extra heft lent to the shank — a signature stylistic element of Peterson.
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.-Truett Smith
