Peterson: Cara Smooth (D5) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-58462
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.
The Cara series from Peterson presents the classic ebony and silver dress pipe motif. Like a formal tuxedo, the black finish is contrasted elegantly by a sterling silver band at the shank end, the flash of silver echoed by the stummel's smooth, glossy aesthetic. The Irish marque is renowned for its use of sterling — an accenting material that's been intertwined with pipe making for over a century — and each silversmith spends years mentoring under the factory's senior craftsmen, having developed a decades long tradition of quality silverwork. The Cara series, named after the Irish word for "friend," boasts the classic, stylish aesthetic all at an impressively accessible price point for silver-accented pieces, making for a true smoking companion.-Truett Smith
