Peterson: Cara Smooth (106) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-73041
Peterson features several straight Billiards on their shape chart, such as the "06," "X105," and "106," and each vary slightly in regards to overall size and relative proportions, catering to smokers' preferences in chamber size, weight, and length. The "106," seen here, is one of the Irish marque's larger renditions — a touch taller and longer than both the "06" and "X105." It also exemplifies Peterson's hearty sense of proportions through the shank and transition, perfect for those who enjoy substantial briars and muscular iterations of classic shapes.
The Cara series from Peterson presents the classic ebony and silver dress pipe motif. Like a formal tuxedo, the black finish is contrasted elegantly by a sterling silver band at the shank end, the flash of silver echoed by the stummel's smooth, glossy aesthetic. The Irish marque is renowned for its use of sterling — an accenting material that's been intertwined with pipemaking for over a century — and each silversmith spends years mentoring under the factory's senior craftsmen, having developed a decades long tradition of quality silverwork. The Cara series, named after the Irish word for "friend," boasts the classic, stylish aesthetic all at an impressively accessible price point for silver-accented pieces, making for a true smoking companion.-Truett Smith
