Peterson: Ragaire Sandblasted (230) Fishtail Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-69939
With a slightly tapered and more rounded style of bowl, Peterson's "230" bent Billiard forgoes the cylindrical, tubular shaping cues typically seen from the Irish marque. That said, Peterson's conventionally muscular style of shank and transition is still clearly evident. Despite these hearty proportions, however, the "230" remains a compact pipe in terms of overall length, well suited to hands-free clenching and an excellent choice for travel.
Named "night wanderer" in Irish, Peterson's Ragaire pipes are designed for those who enjoy late-night wandering, rambling, and engaging in thoughtful conversation into the wee hours of the morning. These are pipes meant to be savored through the late-night hours, and the series reveals a fittingly dark color palette pairing deep, midnight sandblasts with cumberland-patterned acrylic stems. Evoking a similar all-briar aesthetic as the Irish marque's Dunmore pipes from the 1970s and '80s, the Ragaire line forgoes a traditional army mount of silver or nickel and instead features tapered tenons that ensure a snug stem fit without the need for additional reinforcement. Such engineering allows for a highly natural, consistently rugged motif that suits the Ragaire's crisp sandblast while also providing long-lasting durability. Released in 2021, Peterson's Ragaire pipes are tastefully minimalist and charmingly rugged — perfect for the pipe smoker who enjoys dependable briars of naturalistic character.-Truett Smith
