Peterson: Silver Cap Sandblasted (80s) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-52470
Peterson's "80s" is a muscular take on the classic bent Bulldog, featuring the Irish marque's penchant for robust, stout proportions with its thick, sturdy shank bearing almost as much visual weight as the bowl. In a way, it's a diamond-shanked companion to the Irish marque's signature "999" Rhodesian, both designs featuring a squat bowl, the same low-slung disposition, and a set of beadlines around their tapered rims just above the tight transition. The "80s" also serves as a bent alternative to Peterson's "150" straight Bulldog for smokers who prefer a downturned stem for easy clenching, yet prefer the masculine look and feel of such a timeless design and the iconic Peterson aesthetic.
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 deep, chestnut contrast stain, while also protecting the rim from charring.-Jeffery Sitts
