Peterson: Short Rusticated (150) Fishtail Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-76928
Peterson's "150" straight Bulldog is a pert, upright rendition that fits in perfectly with the Irish firm's characteristically muscular shaping style. It's quite the forthright take on the classic English shape, but in keeping with the marque's tradition, it features an incredibly robust, crisp diamond shank. The bowl wears a set of well-defined beadlines and displays a firm heel underneath, though it remains a touch leaner than other, more squat renditions of the shape, making the "150" an ideal choice for those who prefer a taller, trimmer style of Bulldog bowl.
The brainchild of Glen Whelan, Peterson's Director of Sales, the Shorts line features nine popular Peterson shapes with abbreviated shanks and vulcanite fishtail stems. The nosewarmer proportions, combined with the Irish marque's robust shaping style, hearken back to early 20th century pipe design, providing a vintage aesthetic reminiscent of old-school Peterson pipes. Furthermore, each piece is accented by a broad band of sterling silver — the Sallynoggin factory's smiths having earned a prestigious reputation for stunning silverwork over the decades. The flashy accoutrement provides a regal contrast against the dark-stained rustication seen here, presenting a pocket-friendly pipe that doesn't lack in eye-catching appeal.-Truett Smith
