Peterson: Ragaire Sandblasted (80s) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-70018
Peterson's "80s" is a muscular take on the classic bent Bulldog, featuring the Irish marque's penchant for robust, stout proportions with its thick, sturdy shank bearing almost as much visual weight as the bowl. In a way, it's a diamond-shanked companion to the Irish marque's signature "999" Rhodesian, both designs featuring a squat bowl, the same low-slung disposition, and a set of beadlines around their tapered rims just above the tight transition. The "80s" also serves as a bent alternative to Peterson's "150" straight Bulldog for smokers who prefer a downturned stem for easy clenching, yet prefer the masculine look and feel of such a timeless design and the iconic Peterson aesthetic.
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
