Peterson: Christmas 2020 (406) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-54111
While the "408" does display Prince-like elements, the "406" is Peterson's definitive take on the classic Prince shape. Seemingly plucked straight from a vintage English catalog, the profile displays the design's characteristically long, slightly downturned stem, informing its reputation for elegance. The bowl is squat and plump, with perhaps some extra heft to its base, per Peterson's signature shaping style, but the shank and transition are decidedly trimmer, catering more to traditional Anglo-French proportions than the robust, muscular aesthetic seen throughout the Irish marque's portfolio.
Peterson has released an annual, special-edition Christmas pipe to commemorate the holiday season every year since 2009. Presented in a variety of the marque's most popular shapes, each year's edition focuses on a unique, singular finish, inspired by or evocative of the season. For 2020, Peterson has returned to the warm, fireside aesthetic championed in previous editions, complete with a rich, dark stain, copper army mount and a cumberland-patterned acrylic stem. Further elevating the Yuletide aesthetic, 2020's edition features a craggy sandblasted finish, once again showcasing the marque's artisan-style sandblasting equipment. It makes for a gorgeous display of this pipe's grain in stunning relief, making it a welcome companion not only for the winter months but year round, offering appealing texture in hand and a timeless color palette.-Truett Smith
