Peterson: Dublin Filter Rusticated (408) Fishtail (9mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-65574
Combining elements of the Author, Prince, and bent Apple, Peterson's "408" maintains a classic profile yet doesn't fit exactly into the traditional pipe chart. The voluptuous bowl and hearty shank cater well to the Irish marque's muscular design aesthetic, and the unique form demands attention — showcasing classic shaping cues and offering a plump in-hand presence.
Peterson has offered a line of filtered pipes since 1947, evolving over the decades in name and finish. It's remained consistent, though, since 1997 as the Dublin Filter series — each pipe within the line being drilled to hold a 9mm filter, (Peterson's proprietary charcoal filters being offered in packs of 150 and 40 count boxes). Often, when a marque features filtered versions of their standard shapes, certain designs must be slightly altered to accommodate wider drilling; however, Peterson's signature aesthetic hews toward more robust shanks and transitions, making for a seamless cross-over between filtered and non-filtered renditions of the same shape. Presented in a rugged, dark-stained rustication, with lighter hues flecking the texture's peaks to match twin nickel accent rings, the Dublin Filter line displays a handsome aesthetic that remains both striking and traditionally reserved.-Truett Smith
