Peterson: Rosslare Royal Irish Sandblasted (XL02) Fishtail

Product Number: 002-029-51651

The "XL02" is, in essence, a fuller-bodied approach to the beloved "03" bent Apple, with added muscularity to the shank and transition. The visual weight of the shank relative to that of the bowl is a hallmark of Peterson's approach to shaping and distinguishes it from what we consider the classic English design of pipe making. It's a great example of the marque's signature aesthetic — the stout shank and voluptuous bowl blending well with the slender angle of the stem and tight transition.

Peterson's Rosslare lines are united by a combination of sterling work from the expert silversmiths of the Sallynoggin factory and bright, sun-inspired acrylic stems. In the Rosslare Classic, that silver is featured around the shank end. The Rosslare Royal Irish takes that further, though, offering fitments not only at the shank end but about the stem base too. The accoutrements combine beautifully with the radiant stem of amber-hued acrylic, seen here, while the vivid palette contrasts against the dark-stained sandblast of the stummel.
