Peterson: Ragaire Sandblasted (03) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-70035
Peterson's "03" bent Apple maintains the extra-stout shank and robust transition that combine to define the Peterson aesthetic, while trading the Irish marque's typically tubular bowl style with the rounded form of a classic Apple. The plumpness of the bowl translates well to the hearty transition and shank, lending the composition a tight-knit, muscular aesthetic. It's one of the marque's most charming, well-known shapes, and it's easy to see why — whether hanging from the jaw or filling the palm, it's a versatile smoker that seamlessly marries traditional appeal with Peterson's recognizable personality.
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
