Peterson: Arklow Sandblasted (104) Fishtail Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-80600
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.
Originally, the Arklow series was a limited release from Peterson, exclusive to Smokingpipes. However, in 2020, the line was re-introduced as part of the Irish marque's standard lineup. The Arklow showcases Peterson's in-house sandblasting process, which utilizes an artisan-style setup for more individual control when finishing each pipe. Dressed in a rustic, walnut stain and fitted with a nickel army mount and fishtail stem, the Arklow line presents pipes that display the briar's natural grain patterns in stunning relief, beautifully combining rugged and elegant aesthetics.-Truett Smith
