Peterson: St. Patrick's Day 2022 (X220) Fishtail Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-73176
The "X220" bent Billiard features some of Peterson's classic shaping cues, such as a thick shank and hearty proportions, but it substitutes a bowl that tapers subtly toward the rim in place of one marked by the Irish marque's conventionally upright and tubular aesthetic. It's a considerably robust, full-bodied take on the timeless form and is among the largest of Peterson's bent Billiard renditions. That said, while the bold shaping results in a handful of briar, such boldness and substance is balanced out by a generously bent shank-and-stem combination.
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.-Jeffery Sitts
