Peterson: Silver Cap Sandblasted (408) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-53374
Combining elements of the Author, Prince, and bent Apple, Peterson's "408" maintains a classic profile yet doesn't fit exactly into the traditional pipe chart. The voluptuous bowl and hearty shank cater well to the Irish marque's muscular design aesthetic, and the unique form demands attention — showcasing classic shaping cues and offering a plump in-hand presence.
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 chocolate-hued sandblast, while also protecting the rim from charring.-Truett Smith
