Peterson: Christmas 2022 Copper Army Rusticated (124) Fishtail Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-80229
With its tall, poised bowl, hint of forward cant, and well-balanced proportions, this "124" Dublin from Peterson is easily one of the most svelte shapes to come from the Irish marque. It's highly reminiscent of their "268" Zulu design, but here the bowl is noticeably elongated and a touch more upright with more depth added to its chamber, and the stem is straight rather than gently bent. The lack of hard lines and elegant proportions result in an impressively refined take on the classic form, departing from the stout, muscular shaping style typically associated with the historic Irish firm.
Since 2009, Peterson has released an annual Christmas series that features the Irish marque's iconic shapes in an appropriately seasonal color palette. It's become among the manufacturer's most anticipated and collected series, and recent editions have showcased refined copper accents to elevate the warm, holiday motif. The 2022 version continues the copper theme but expands the array with two distinctive options: those with copper army mounts and those with spigot configurations. They're the first-ever Peterson pipes available with spigot mounts of copper, and the striking accents are fittingly paired to either the dark, smoky stain of the smooth Heritage finish or Peterson's signature rustication. Such variety makes the 2022 version among the most personalizable of all Peterson Christmas editions regarding finish, price, and accent type, and it was the first series of pipes fully produced at the Peterson factory in Dublin's Deansgrange district. This particular Christmas 2022 offering combines the copper army mount with the Rusticated finish, completed by a jet-black acrylic stem with a fishtail mouthpiece.-Truett Smith
