Peterson: Halloween 2022 Sandblasted (XL17) Fishtail Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-029-81725

Outside of the Sherlock Holmes Collection, the Watson design is designated as the "XL17" shape. Fittingly, it shares a number of shaping cues with the Original Sherlock Holmes design (the "XL11" across the marque's standard series). Both display a deeply bent shank-and-stem combination ending in a defined transition, and the only difference lies in their bowls — the "X11" poises the quintessential Holmes Calabash bowl, whose curves and flare coincide with Sherlock's eccentric, bohemian personality, while the tall Rhodesian of the "XL17" presented here, better embodies the Watson's more reserved, gentlemanly nature.

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.
