Peterson: Donegal Rocky (104) Fishtail Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-80565
Among Peterson's most svelte and soft-lined Billiard renditions, the "104" dates back to the 1906 catalog and is notably smaller than the Irish marque's "101," "X105," "106," and "107" Billiards. Its slender size is closest to the "102," and it comes in two versions: One features a standard, straight stem, while the other displays a subtle downturn for added elegance and languid curvature. Such a posture lends it a Prince-like air and one that makes this already portable pipe all the more comfortably clenched, with the straight version maintaining a sleek and stoic disposition for traditional appeal.
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
