Peterson: Arklow Sandblasted (65) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-50086
In terms of overall scale, Peterson's "65" bent Billiard is one of the Irish marque's smaller bent Billiard renditions, especially when compared to the likes of their "XL90" and "X220." While in a smaller package, however, the "65" still features Peterson's signature sense of proportions — the transition, shank, and stem base all quite robust in relation to the rest of the piece. This design cue separates the Irish aesthetic from that of the French and English pipe making approach, with the "65" towing the line in its compact form but substantial presence. It's the perfect option for those who want the best of both worlds.
Originally, the Arklow series was a limited release from Peterson, exclusive to Smokingpipes. However, in 2020, the line was re-introduced as part of the Irish marque's standard lineup. The Arklow showcases Peterson's in-house sandblasting process, which utilizes an artisan-style setup for more individual control when finishing each pipe. Dressed in a rustic, walnut stain and fitted with a nickel army mount and fishtail stem, the Arklow line presents pipes that display the briar's natural grain patterns in stunning relief, beautifully combining rugged and elegant aesthetics.-Truett Smith
