Peterson: Arklow Sandblasted (80s) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-65862
Peterson's "80s" is a muscular take on the classic bent Bulldog, featuring the Irish marque's penchant for robust, stout proportions with its thick, sturdy shank bearing almost as much visual weight as the bowl. In a way, it's a diamond-shanked companion to the Irish marque's signature "999" Rhodesian, both designs featuring a squat bowl, the same low-slung disposition, and a set of beadlines around their tapered rims just above the tight transition. The "80s" also serves as a bent alternative to Peterson's "150" straight Bulldog for smokers who prefer a downturned stem for easy clenching, yet prefer the masculine look and feel of such a timeless design and the iconic Peterson aesthetic.
Originally, the Arklow series was a limited release from Peterson, exclusive to Smokingpipes. However, in 2020, the line was re-introduced as part of the Irish marque's standard lineup. The Arklow showcases Peterson's in-house sandblasting process, which utilizes an artisan-style setup for more individual control when finishing each pipe. Dressed in a rustic, walnut stain and fitted with a nickel army mount and fishtail stem, the Arklow line presents pipes that display the briar's natural grain patterns in stunning relief, beautifully combining rugged and elegant aesthetics.-Jeffery Sitts
