Peterson: Donegal Rocky (D11) Fishtail Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-75163
With a low-profile oval shank and an overall demeanor connoting trim, svelte confidence, this "D11" Billiard from Peterson is a departure from the Irish company's usually tubular, stocky aesthetic, shifting toward the English design school. Compared to Peterson's other Billiard variants, the "D11" poses a much sleeker and more slender posture through the oval shank and stem, thrusting the visual weight toward the hearty bowl up front. It's lean in profile, but with plenty of tobacco chamber within its upright bowl.
Named after County Donegal in northwest Ireland, Peterson's Donegal Rocky series offers one of the Irish firm's most distinctive and immediately recognizable finishes. Much like the mountainous region it's inspired by, the rustication style of the Donegal Rocky line is incredibly craggy and provides plenty of stimulating texture, transforming any pipe that wears it into a rugged workhorse smoker. Peterson's first rusticated finish, the Donegal Rocky dates back to 1945, and is presented here with a bright nickel band offering a touch of refinement against the dark, red-tinged stain of the stummel.- Chuck Stanion
