Peterson: Halloween 2022 Sandblasted (306) Fishtail Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-81080
Bent pipes, while offering a comfortably clenched smoking posture, aren't often as convenient for setting down when need arises. Peterson solves that dichotomy in their "306" bent Billiard, originally introduced back in 1992. Featuring a generous bend and flattened heel, the "306" affords the benefits of a bent pipe as well as that of Poker — allowing the pipe to sit upright on a flat surface. Shape-wise, it resembles the bold form of an Oom Paul and exemplifies the Irish marque's muscular approach to shaping, making for quite the versatile pipe in signature Peterson style.
Introduced over a decade ago and lasting only for several years, Peterson's annual Samhain series commemorated the seasonal Gaelic holiday that marked the end of the harvest and the transition to winter — known today as Halloween. The celebration returned in 2021 with Peterson's Halloween pipes, combining the cauldron-black sandblast and blood red-swirled acrylic stem of the marque's iconic Dracula line with nickel army mounts and Charles Peterson's patented System engineering. The Halloween 2022 edition follows that tradition with a distinctly autumnal motif: These pipes maintain the black sandblast and nickel mounts of last year's version, only paired to fishtail stems of vibrant, pumpkin-orange acrylic. The series is offered across Peterson's iconic Classic shapes and is a fitting tribute to Peterson's Irish identity in a representative style that combines recognizable Peterson shaping with a handsome, modernist color palette.-Truett Smith
