Peterson: Arklow Sandblasted (D5) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-56362
The "D" line of shapes within Peterson's portfolio were originally produced for the Irish marque's Danish distributor, Larsen and Peterson, and these designs typically embody an aesthetic more akin to Danish pipe design, forgoing Peterson's signature muscular and robust shaping style. For the "D5" Billiard, such Danish inspiration is manifested in a slightly longer, more slender shank-and-stem combination and a trimmer, softer-lined bowl. It makes for a pipe that boasts Peterson's quality but in a different style, adding diversity and variety to the marque's vast shape chart.
Originally, the Arklow series was a limited release from Peterson, exclusive to Smokingpipes. However, in 2020, the line was re-introduced as part of the Irish marque's standard lineup. The Arklow showcases Peterson's in-house sandblasting process, which utilizes an artisan-style setup for more individual control when finishing each pipe. Dressed in a rustic, walnut stain and fitted with a nickel army mount and fishtail stem, the Arklow line presents pipes that display the briar's natural grain patterns in stunning relief, beautifully combining rugged and elegant aesthetics.-Truett Smith
