Peterson: Donegal Rocky (D5) Fishtail Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-78848
The "D" line of shapes within Peterson's portfolio were originally produced for the Irish marque's Danish distributor, Larsen and Peterson, and these designs typically embody an aesthetic more akin to Danish pipe design, forgoing Peterson's signature muscular and robust shaping style. For the "D5" Billiard, such Danish inspiration is manifested in a slightly longer, more slender shank-and-stem combination and a trimmer, softer-lined bowl. It makes for a pipe that boasts Peterson's quality but in a different style, adding diversity and variety to the marque's vast shape chart.
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.-Truett Smith
