Peterson: Halloween 2022 Sandblasted (86) Fishtail Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-81683
While both of Peterson's "87" and "86" shapes are straight Apples, this "86" hews closer to the classic English pipe chart standard. Where the "87" adds some of the Irish marque's signature muscularity about the shank and transition, this piece opts for a more svelte disposition, the shank running sleek and streamlined into the plump bowl. For those interested in a more trimly styled Peterson, the "86" Apple offers a touch less robustness and maintains a thoroughly traditional appeal.
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
