Peterson: Aran Rusticated (304) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-66019
The "304" shares both style and history with the "306": Both designs were introduced to Peterson's shape chart in 1992 and were the first new System pipes since the "301," "302," and "303" were featured in the 1978 catalog. The "304" and "306" also boast flattened heels, allowing them to sit upright while still offering the comfortable posture of a bent pipe. While most Peterson shapes change numbers when featured outside the System line, these two flat-bottomed forms remain constant across series. Presented here is the "304," being a touch smaller than the "306," catering to pipe smokers' personal preferences.
One of Peterson's most traditional finishes, the Aran presents a color palette of chocolatey stain and jet-black stem. In this piece, the extra-craggy application presents raised peaks and dimpled grooves for a stimulating texture in hand, reminiscent of Peterson's rustications of old, and offers a no-nonsense aesthetic that's perfect for rugged, everyday use.-Truett Smith
