Peterson: St. Patrick's Day 2020 (106) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-52279
Peterson features several straight Billiards on their shape chart, such as the "06," "X105," and "106," and each vary slightly in regards to overall size and relative proportions, catering to smokers' preferences in chamber size, weight, and length. The "106," seen here, is one of the Irish marque's larger renditions — a touch taller and longer than both the "06" and "X105." It also exemplifies Peterson's hearty sense of proportions through the shank and transition, perfect for those who enjoy substantial briars and muscular iterations of classic shapes.
Alongside the Sherlock Holmes Collection and annual Christmas and Pipe of the Year lines, Peterson's perennial St. Patrick's Day series is one of the marque's most collectible offerings, marked by a color palette and aesthetic unique to the specific year, yet always with a distinctly Irish motif. The 2020 edition celebrates the limited line's 23rd consecutive release, and this year's pipes feature Peterson's signature emerald stain covering an extra-craggy sandblast — thanks to the Sallynoggin factory's updated, artisanal sandblasting set-up — and paired to a bright nickel army mount. This is a pipe that appreciates Peterson's heritage and esteemed quality, adding modern finishing techniques to the firm's iconic, timeless shaping style.-Truett Smith
