Peterson: Bard Rusticated (03) Fishtail Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-76939
Peterson's "03" bent Apple maintains the extra-stout shank and robust transition that combine to define the Peterson aesthetic, while trading the Irish marque's typically tubular bowl style with the rounded form of a classic Apple. The plumpness of the bowl translates well to the hearty transition and shank, lending the composition a tight-knit, muscular aesthetic. It's one of the marque's most charming, well-known shapes, and it's easy to see why — whether hanging from the jaw or filling the palm, it's a versatile smoker that seamlessly marries traditional appeal with Peterson's recognizable personality.
Peterson's Bard series derives its name from the borrowed Irish word for poet and oral storyteller, and it comprises a range of rare demi-Churchwarden designs that honor the historic tavern pipes once smoked by countless storytellers across Europe's public houses. Despite the extended profile, though, Bard pipes still maintain Peterson's signature, muscular shaping style, offering an elegant balance between the comfort and leisurely posture of a traditional Churchwarden and the portability and utility of smaller designs. This pipe wears Peterson's signature rustication and features a sturdy nickel army mount and an elongated, jet-black acrylic stem with a comfortable fishtail bit, and unlike Peterson's flagship Churchwarden line, which features more diminutive, slender shapes, the Bard series comprises three of the marque's most popular Classic designs — the "03," "68," and "221" — nodding to Peterson's early history when a Patent shape could be fitted to a mouthpiece of a customer's preferred length.-Truett Smith
