Peterson: Christmas 2020 (221) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-66605
While the bent Billiard is a classic shape, rendered by countless companies, Peterson's "221" iteration is readily recognized as the work of the Irish marque because of the added visual weight attributed to the shank and transition. Such extra heft stretches the heel and provides more palm-filling substance. It makes for an eye-catching, muscular form in profile yet remains well balanced thanks to the curled transition and bent stem out back.
Peterson has released an annual, special-edition Christmas pipe to commemorate the holiday season every year since 2009. Presented in a variety of the marque's most popular shapes, each year's edition focuses on a unique, singular finish, inspired by or evocative of the season. For 2020, Peterson has returned to the warm, fireside aesthetic championed in previous editions, complete with a rich, dark stain, copper army mount and a cumberland-patterned acrylic stem. Further elevating the Yuletide aesthetic, 2020's edition features a craggy sandblasted finish, once again showcasing the marque's artisan-style sandblasting equipment. It makes for a gorgeous display of this pipe's grain in stunning relief, making it a welcome companion not only for the winter months but year round, offering appealing texture in hand and a timeless color palette.-Truett Smith
