Peterson: Flame Grain Silver Cap (69) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-57393
The "69" is one of Peterson's most traditional English designs, representing the style of bent Billiard common to classic English and French marques. The prominent transition and heavy-set shank that define Peterson's aesthetic are forgone, replaced by a more slender, angular profile. It's one of the most classic designs in the Irish marque's lineup, featuring clean, smooth lines and balanced proportions — perfect for those drawn to Peterson's history and reputation of craftsmanship but desire a leaner style of bent Billiard.
Peterson's esteemed Flame Grain series consists of pipes crafted from select quality briar, carefully chosen for their choice grain orientation. The designation represents one of Peterson's highest grades, and in this example the lively array of grain is brought out by a smoky, black walnut contrast stain. The finish draws attention to the silver cap and accent band, fashioned by the Sallynoggin factory's expert silversmiths, each one having spent years of mentorship underneath Peterson's senior craftsmen. The metal provides a formal, austere presentation, and the cap also protects the rim from charring, making for a pipe that's as eye-catching as it is practical.-Jeffery Sitts
