Peterson: St. Patrick's Day 2021 (999) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-60336
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.
The St. Patrick's Day line is one of Peterson's most collectible and highly anticipated yearly releases, joining similar limited series like the marque's Christmas and Pipe of the Year offerings. Unlike those other series, though, the St. Patrick's Day line relates directly to Peterson's Irish heritage, often incorporating a green color palette that honors the brand's Emerald Isle identity. In previous years, that theme has been realized through an emerald stain or emerald-hued accenting adornments, but for 2021, the St. Patrick's Day line dazzles with a deep green, acrylic stem fitted to a stummel dressed in Peterson's recognizable, hand-tooled rustication in a dark, two-toned stain with a broad nickel accent band around the shank end. The tri-color palette alternates strikingly between the reserved stain, flashy metal, and vibrant stem, making for a pipe that remains tastefully traditional yet undeniably memorable — all while exuding an aesthetic that's iconically "Peterson." Furthermore, this pipe comes complete with a matching green, branded leather pipe stand exclusive to the St. Patrick's Day 2021 run.
Note: While this specific Peterson pipe has been photographed individually like our other pipes, the Peterson-branded leather stand accompanying it has not, and the pipe representing its use may or may not be the one offered here.-Truett Smith
