Peterson: Aran Smooth Nickel Mounted (B11) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-50640
Though a part of Peterson's standard shape chart, the Irish marque's "B" designs fall a bit outside of convention, each piece being more eccentric compared to traditional pipe chart standards and often combining elements of various other classic shapes. In the case of the "B11," the Irish marque presents a flat-bottomed Brandy on the end of a sinuous, well-balanced S-curve. The strongly tapered bowl showcases Peterson's voluptuous shaping style and also ensures an easy, ergonomic feel in hand.
One of Peterson's most traditional finishes, the Aran presents a color palette of chocolatey stain and jet-black stem. In the smooth iteration, it highlights the briar's natural grain pattern with handsome reservation — not distracting from the form's shape yet, at the same time, offering enough definition and detail to remain intriguing and individual, accented here with a flashy nickel band to add some formal panache and elegant appeal.-Truett Smith
