Peterson: Rosslare Classic Smooth (264) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-55327
Long and lean, with a Billiard bowl perched on the end of an elongated oval shank, the "264" is a thoroughly traditional take on the Canadian and is a noticeable departure from Peterson's signature muscular, tubular style. It's also quite similar in execution to the marque's "265" oval-shanked Billiard, though here, the shank is lengthened significantly and the stem shortened. Such a Canadian rendition is an ideal choice for those who prefer trimmer, sleeker designs but want to experience a shape chart standard interpreted by one of the most respected names in the business.
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.-Jeffery Sitts
