Peterson: Christmas 2020 (D16) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-55837
The "D16" bent Dublin is one of Peterson's more classically proportioned shapes. It forgoes the Irish marque's signature style of robust proportions, trading their oft-seen muscular shank and transition for a more slender, sinuous form. Originally produced for the Irish marque'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 than the hearty Irish style of Peterson's other pieces. In the "D16" bent Dublin, that aesthetic is manifested by a bowl that flicks upward from out of the heel and flares conservatively in a forward cant for a dynamic, sleek profile. Certainly a shape worthy of consideration for those drawn to Peterson's historic reputation and who want a more streamlined shape chart standard.
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
