Peterson: Cara Sandblasted (264) Fishtail Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-68400
Long and lean, with a Billiard bowl perched on the end of an elongated oval shank, the "264" is a thoroughly traditional take on the Canadian and is a noticeable departure from Peterson's signature muscular, tubular style. It's also quite similar in execution to the marque's "265" oval-shanked Billiard, though here, the shank is lengthened significantly and the stem shortened. Such a Canadian rendition is an ideal choice for those who prefer trimmer, sleeker designs but want to experience a shape-chart standard interpreted by one of the most respected names in the business.
The Cara series from Peterson presents the classic ebony and silver dress pipe motif. Like a formal tuxedo, the black finish is contrasted elegantly by a sterling silver band at the shank end, the crisp flash of silver accentuated further by the stummel's sandblasted texture. The Irish marque is renowned for its use of sterling — an accenting material that's been intertwined with pipe making for over a century — and each silversmith spends years mentoring under the factory's senior craftsmen, having developed a decades long tradition of quality silverwork. The Cara series, named after the Irish word for "friend," boasts the classic, stylish aesthetic all at an impressively accessible price point for silver-accented pieces, making for a true smoking companion.-Jeffery Sitts
