Peterson: Rosslare Royal Irish Sandblasted (B10) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-65884
Like all of Peterson's "B" family shapes, which merge elements of several designs to create attractive and unique hybrids, the Irish marque's "B10" occupies a pretty eccentric spot — not exactly a classic shape, but featuring classical components to its overall design. If you look hard enough, you can find hints of the bent Dublin, Calabash, and Rhodesian shapes alike, yet the overall design still comes off cohesive and well-knit.
Peterson's Rosslare lines are united by a combination of sterling work from the expert silversmiths of the Sallynoggin factory and bright, sun-inspired acrylic stems. In the Rosslare Classic, that silver is featured around the shank end. The Rosslare Royal Irish takes that further, though, offering fitments not only at the shank end but about the stem base too. The accoutrements combine beautifully with the radiant stem of amber-hued acrylic, seen here, while the vivid palette contrasts against the dark-stained sandblast of the stummel.-Jeffery Sitts
