Peterson: St. Patrick's Day 2022 (XL02) Fishtail Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-74652
The "XL02" is, in essence, a fuller-bodied approach to the beloved "03" bent Apple, with added muscularity to the shank and transition. The visual weight of the shank relative to that of the bowl is a hallmark of Peterson's approach to shaping and distinguishes it from what we consider the classic English design of pipe making. It's a great example of the marque's signature aesthetic — the stout shank and voluptuous bowl blending well with the slender angle of the stem and tight transition.
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
