Peterson: Rosslare Classic Smooth (XL02) Fishtail

Product Number: 002-029-55201

The "XL02" is, in essence, a fuller-bodied approach to the beloved "03" bent Apple, with added muscularity to the shank and transition. The visual weight of the shank relative to that of the bowl is a hallmark of Peterson's approach to shaping and distinguishes it from what we consider the classic English design of pipemaking. It's a great example of the marque's signature aesthetic — the stout shank and voluptuous bowl blending well with the slender angle of the stem and tight transition.

Peterson's Rosslare lines are united by a combination of sterling work from the expert silversmiths of the Sallynoggin factory and bright, sun-inspired acrylic stems. In the Rosslare Classic, that silver is featured around the shank end, separating the dark-stained, smooth stummel from a radiant stem of amber-hued acrylic. It's a striking, modern aesthetic but one that calls to mind the early years of pipemaking when genuine amber was used to fashion mouthpieces.
