Peterson: Arklow Sandblasted (106) Fishtail Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-73963
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.
Originally, the Arklow series was a limited release from Peterson, exclusive to Smokingpipes. However, in 2020, the line was re-introduced as part of the Irish marque's standard lineup. The Arklow showcases Peterson's in-house sandblasting process, which utilizes an artisan-style setup for more individual control when finishing each pipe. Dressed in a rustic, walnut stain and fitted with a nickel army mount and fishtail stem, the Arklow line presents pipes that display the briar's natural grain patterns in stunning relief, beautifully combining rugged and elegant aesthetics.-Truett Smith
