Peterson: St. Patrick's Day 2020 (999) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-53258
Defined by a Bulldog bowl and round shank, the Rhodesian is a classic shape that's enjoyed a place on traditional pipe charts for well over a century. On Peterson's chart, the age-old form is designated as the "999," showcasing everything pipe smokers love about the traditional shape — hard lines around the bowl; a tapering rim; and a stout, muscular disposition in hand — while also boasting the Irish marque's conventional shaping cues. The bowl tapers above and below the design's defining beadlines, while the rim barely rises above the transition thanks to the extra heft lent to the shank — a signature stylistic element of Peterson.
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
