Peterson: Dracula Sandblasted (05) Fishtail Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-65390
Perhaps the most iconic of all Peterson shapes, the "305" Calabash is the System version of the cherished "05" design. It features a bowl flaring trumpet-like at the rim, a high transition to the shank, and a shank that is wide, muscular, and substantial in hand. Its wide base and smooth curvature, along with its easy-to-grasp, cinched waistline, have been prominent features admired by generations of smokers. Among Peterson's oldest and most popular shapes, the "305" epitomizes the Peterson design aesthetic, especially with the added benefit of the Irish marque's patented System engineering.
One of the Irish marque's most striking and colorful series within their standard fare, Peterson's Dracula line draws inspiration from Bram Stoker's classic novel to offer a color palette worthy of the Count himself. Here, a jet-black sandblast adorns the bowl coinciding with the inky swirls overtop the blood-red acrylic stem. A regal band of bright nickel separates stem from stummel and juxtaposes an elegant appeal against the rest of the piece's spooky aesthetic — similar to Dracula's own aristocratic, yet horrific nature. Like Peterson's Sherlock Holmes series, the Dracula line is a worthy homage to historic literature from one of the pipe industry's most historic marques.- Chuck Stanion
