Peterson: Halloween 2022 Sandblasted (406) Fishtail Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-81702
While the "408" does display Prince-like elements, the "406" is Peterson's definitive take on the classic Prince shape. Seemingly plucked straight from a vintage English catalog, the profile displays the design's characteristically long, slightly downturned stem, informing its reputation for elegance. The bowl is squat and plump, with perhaps some extra heft to its base, per Peterson's signature shaping style, but the shank and transition are decidedly trimmer, catering more to traditional Anglo-French proportions than the robust, muscular aesthetic seen throughout the Irish marque's portfolio.
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
