Peterson: Donegal Rocky (15) Fishtail Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-80774
Peterson's "15" is one of their lighter and trimmer straight Billiards, noticeably forgoing the Irish marque's conventionally robust and stout proportions. The "15" leans more towards the classic style often seen in vintage French briars with its shank and stem extended and slightly trimmed up to create a more slender, svelte appearance. It also scales back their signature muscular aesthetic and is an ideal option for anyone who appreciates Peterson's rich history and approach to pipe making, but who prefers their briars on the slimmer side.
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
