Peterson: Ashford (87) Fishtail

Product Number: 002-029-52525

Peterson's "87" is a straight Apple in classic Peterson style, with a bit of extra heft to its shank relative to the bowl and a tapered stem that keeps things balanced throughout. It's still a robust, hearty smoker, that has no problem upholding the marque's characteristically bold style and features a bowl that is capacious enough to thoroughly enjoy your favorite tobacco, yet small enough so that it doesn't require a major time commitment.

Named after Ashford Castle, a 13th-century edifice in western Ireland later upgraded in the Victorian era (and now a five-star, luxury hotel), Peterson's Ashford series dresses pipes in a smooth, dark walnut stain and pairs them with a cumberland-hued acrylic stem to match. Contrasting the smoky color palette, a sterling silver mount adds further elegance and bespeaks Peterson's renowned silverwork — each Sallynoggin smith having spent years of mentorship under the factory's senior craftsmen. The Ashford presents a more rustic version of the black-and-silver dress pipe motif while still retaining a strong sense of formal class, and as an added factoid, Ashford Castle was a prominent filming site for John Ford's Academy Award winning The Quiet Man in 1952 — a bit of trivia for John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara aficionados.
