Peterson: Arklow Sandblasted (B10) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-57803
Like all of Peterson's "B" family shapes, which merge elements of several designs to create attractive and unique hybrids, the Irish marque's "B10" occupies a pretty eccentric spot — not exactly a classic shape, but featuring classical components to its overall design. If you look hard enough, you can find hints of the bent Dublin, Calabash, and Rhodesian shapes alike, yet the overall design still comes off cohesive and well-knit.
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.-Jeffery Sitts
