Peterson: Ragaire Sandblasted (150) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-69977
Peterson's "150" straight Bulldog is a pert, upright rendition that fits in perfectly with the Irish firm's characteristically muscular shaping style. It's quite the forthright take on the classic English shape, but in keeping with the marque's tradition, it features an incredibly robust, crisp diamond shank. The bowl wears a set of well-defined beadlines and displays a firm heel underneath, though it remains a touch leaner than other, more squat renditions of the shape, making the "150" an ideal choice for those who prefer a taller, trimmer style of Bulldog bowl.
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.-Jeffery Sitts
