Peterson: Christmas 2022 Copper Army Heritage (D17) Fishtail Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-81530
A unique hybrid of Dublin and Acorn, Peterson's "D17" shape features a high-set transition, making for a rounded heel spur above which rises a flared bowl. Originally produced for the Irish marque's Danish distributor, Larsen and Peterson, around 1996, the "D" line focuses on traditional Danish shaping, creating shapes that are more slender and elegantly curved than the hearty Irish style of Peterson's other pieces. In the case of the "D17," that aesthetic is personified in the extra-trim shank and sleek taper of the bowl — the raised transition and defined heel reminiscent of classic Danish pipes.
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 Heritage finish, completed by a jet-black acrylic stem with a fishtail mouthpiece.-Truett Smith
