Peterson: St. Patrick's Day 2022 (999) Fishtail Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-72288
Defined by a Bulldog bowl and round shank, the Rhodesian is a classic shape that's enjoyed a place on traditional pipe charts for well over a century. On Peterson's chart, the age-old form is designated as the "999," showcasing everything pipe smokers love about the traditional shape — hard lines around the bowl; a tapering rim; and a stout, muscular disposition in hand — while also boasting the Irish marque's conventional shaping cues. The bowl tapers above and below the design's defining beadlines, while the rim barely rises above the transition thanks to the extra heft lent to the shank — a signature stylistic element of Peterson.
The St. Patrick's Day series is Peterson's longest-standing annual release, having debuted in 1998. The series is among the marque's most celebrated and highly anticipated releases, and like previous versions, the 2022 rendition pays homage to Kapp & Peterson's storied Irish heritage with a color palette befitting the Emerald Isle. This Peterson St. Patrick's Day pipe wears the workshop's signature, hand-tooled rustication and a rich, walnut stain, and it's elevated by a fishtail stem of emerald-green acrylic fitted to a nickel army mount. Moreover, a matching green, Peterson-branded leather stand completes the array, perfect for desk-top use or display.
Note: While this specific Peterson pipe has been photographed individually like our other pipes, the Peterson-branded leather stand accompanying it has not, and the pipe representing its use may or may not be the one offered here.-Truett Smith
