Peterson: Cara Sandblasted (15) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-54442
Peterson's "15" is one of their lighter and trimmer straight Billiards, noticeably forgoing the Irish marque's conventionally robust and stout proportions. The "15" leans more towards the classic style often seen in vintage French briars with its shank and stem extended and slightly trimmed up to create a more slender, svelte appearance. It also scales back their signature muscular aesthetic and is an ideal option for anyone who appreciates Peterson's rich history and approach to pipemaking, but who prefers their briars on the slimmer side.
The Cara series from Peterson presents the classic ebony and silver dress pipe motif. Like a formal tuxedo, the black finish is contrasted elegantly by a sterling silver band at the shank end, the crisp flash of silver accentuated further by the stummel's sandblasted texture. The Irish marque is renowned for its use of sterling — an accenting material that's been intertwined with pipemaking for over a century — and each silversmith spends years mentoring under the factory's senior craftsmen, having developed a decades long tradition of quality silverwork. The Cara series, named after the Irish word for "friend," boasts the classic, stylish aesthetic all at an impressively accessible price point for silver-accented pieces, making for a true smoking companion.-Jeffery Sitts
