Peterson: Christmas 2020 (D15) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-54669
Originally produced for Peterson's Danish distributor, Larsen and Peterson, around 1996, the "D" line focuses on traditional Danish shaping, creating shapes that are more slender and elegantly curved compared to the hearty Irish style typically personified in Peterson's portfolio. Presented here is the "D15," an angled take on the bent Dublin — the transition sharply curled to create a prominent, almost pointed heel below the flaring bowl. Per Danish shaping cues, the lines and curves are soft and sleek, the form marked by trim proportions and a forward-urging dynamism.
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
