Peterson: Dublin Filter Rusticated (80s) Fishtail (9mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-79046
Peterson's "80s" is a muscular take on the classic bent Bulldog, featuring the Irish marque's penchant for robust, stout proportions with its thick, sturdy shank bearing almost as much visual weight as the bowl. In a way, it's a diamond-shanked companion to the Irish marque's signature "999" Rhodesian, both designs featuring a squat bowl, the same low-slung disposition, and a set of beadlines around their tapered rims just above the tight transition. The "80s" also serves as a bent alternative to Peterson's "150" straight Bulldog for smokers who prefer a downturned stem for easy clenching, yet prefer the masculine look and feel of such a timeless design and the iconic Peterson aesthetic.
Peterson has offered a line of filtered pipes since 1947, evolving over the decades in name and finish: Since 1997 the Dublin Filter comprised the Irish marque's only filtered series, with the Army Filter introduced in 2021, and all pipes within these lines are drilled to hold a 9mm filter, (Peterson's proprietary charcoal filters being offered in packs of 150- and 40-count boxes). Often, when a marque features filtered versions of their standard shapes, certain designs must be slightly altered to accommodate wider drilling; however, Peterson's signature aesthetic hews toward more robust shanks and transitions, making for a seamless cross-over between filtered and non-filtered renditions of the same shape. Presented in a rugged, dark-stained rustication, with lighter hues flecking the texture's peaks to match twin nickel accent rings, the Dublin Filter line here displays a handsome aesthetic that remains both striking and traditionally reserved.-Truett Smith
