Peterson: Christmas 2022 Copper Spigot Rusticated (B42) Fishtail Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-80281
In 2009, Peterson released the Darwin "B42" shape in commemoration of the sesquicentennial of Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species. The English naturalist's seminal work was published in 1859, just 17 years before another Charles would join Fredrick Kapp in founding the longest-standing pipe manufacturer in the world: Kapp & Peterson. The "B42" is a robust bent Apple, displaying an Author-like substance through the shank and transition that exemplifies Peterson's signature aesthetic — a perfect homage, to both Charles Darwin and Charles Peterson himself.
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 spigot mount with the Rusticated finish, completed by a jet-black acrylic stem with a fishtail mouthpiece.-Truett Smith
