Peterson: Christmas 2022 Copper Army Rusticated (65) Fishtail Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-81518
In terms of overall scale, Peterson's "65" bent Billiard is one of the Irish marque's smaller bent Billiard renditions, especially when compared to the likes of their "XL90" and "X220." While in a smaller package, however, the "65" still features Peterson's signature sense of proportions — the transition, shank, and stem base all quite robust in relation to the rest of the piece. This design cue separates the Irish aesthetic from that of the French and English pipe making approach, with the "65" towing the line in its compact form but substantial presence. It's the perfect option for those who want the best of both worlds.
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 army mount with the Rusticated finish, completed by a jet-black acrylic stem with a fishtail mouthpiece.-Truett Smith
