Peterson: Silver Cap Sandblasted (338) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-50744
Peterson's iconic shaping style is often described as "tubular" and muscular, and the Irish marque's "338" bent Billiard does well to exemplify this convention — being the same design as the "313" but outside of the System series. The bowl rises tall and upright, posing a cylindrical, tube-like disposition, while the shank and transition retain the aforementioned hearty and robust proportions. That said, the overall length remains quite compact, and the sinuous bend provides a comfortable clenching posture — the gesture of the stem and curling heel calling to mind the profile of the iconic "05" shape but without the bowl's flare at the rim.
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
