Peterson: Dublin Filter Rusticated (221) Fishtail (9mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-71172
While the bent Billiard is a classic shape, rendered by countless companies, Peterson's "221" iteration is readily recognized as the work of the Irish marque because of the added visual weight attributed to the shank and transition. Such extra heft stretches the heel and provides more palm-filling substance. It makes for an eye-catching, muscular form in profile yet remains well balanced thanks to the curled transition and bent stem out back.
Peterson has offered a line of filtered pipes since 1947, evolving over the decades in name and finish: Since 1997 the Dublin Filter comprised the Irish marque's only filtered series, with the Army Filter introduced in 2021, and all pipes within these lines are drilled to hold a 9mm filter, (Peterson's proprietary charcoal filters being offered in packs of 150- and 40-count boxes). Often, when a marque features filtered versions of their standard shapes, certain designs must be slightly altered to accommodate wider drilling; however, Peterson's signature aesthetic hews toward more robust shanks and transitions, making for a seamless cross-over between filtered and non-filtered renditions of the same shape. Presented in a rugged, dark-stained rustication, with lighter hues flecking the texture's peaks to match twin nickel accent rings, the Dublin Filter line here displays a handsome aesthetic that remains both striking and traditionally reserved.-Truett Smith
