Peterson: Rosslare Classic Smooth (221) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-56615
While the bent Billiard is a classic shape, rendered by countless companies, Peterson's "221" iteration is readily recognized as the work of the Irish marque because of the added visual weight attributed to the shank and transition. Such extra heft stretches the heel and provides more palm-filling substance. It makes for an eye-catching, muscular form in profile yet remains well balanced thanks to the curled transition and bent stem out back.
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 pipe making when genuine amber was used to fashion mouthpieces.-Truett Smith
