Peterson: Rosslare Royal Irish Sandblasted (999) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-56617
Defined by a Bulldog bowl and round shank, the Rhodesian is a classic shape that's enjoyed a place on traditional pipe charts for well over a century. On Peterson's chart, the age-old form is designated as the "999," showcasing everything pipe smokers love about the traditional shape — hard lines around the bowl; a tapering rim; and a stout, muscular disposition in hand — while also boasting the Irish marque's conventional shaping cues. The bowl tapers above and below the design's defining beadlines, while the rim barely rises above the transition thanks to the extra heft lent to the shank — a signature stylistic element of Peterson.
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. The Rosslare Royal Irish takes that further, though, offering fitments not only at the shank end but about the stem base too. The accoutrements combine beautifully with the radiant stem of amber-hued acrylic, seen here, while the vivid palette contrasts against the dark-stained sandblast of the stummel.-Truett Smith
