Peterson: Red Spigot (86) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-63312
While both of Peterson's "87" and "86" shapes are straight Apples, this "86" hews closer to the classic English pipe chart standard. Where the "87" adds some of the Irish marque's signature muscularity about the shank and transition, this piece opts for a more svelte disposition, the shank running sleek and streamlined into the plump bowl. For those interested in a more trimly styled Peterson, the "86" Apple offers a touch less robustness and maintains a thoroughly traditional appeal.
Along with their signature shaping style, Peterson of Dublin is renowned for their silverwork. The journey of becoming a Peterson silversmith requires years of training and personal mentorship from the factory's senior craftsmen, and the superlative results testify to such a demanding, lengthy process — each worker having engineered his own mandrel to the extent that every metal accoutrement made is imprinted with the subtle, personal style of the one who machined it. Peterson's Spigot line best showcases the Irish marque's signature silver treatment, fitting sterling silver around both the shank end and stem base in a spigot mount arrangement. The construction provides further reinforcement and durability and highlights even more sterling silver than would be used for a standard military mount. Presented here in the Red Spigot finish, the flashy, regal metal is paired to deep, ruby stain for a more colorful take on the dress pipe aesthetic that calls to mind Dunhill's iconic Bruyere finish.-Truett Smith
