Peterson: Christmas 2022 Copper Spigot Rusticated (80s) Fishtail Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-82784
Peterson's "80s" is a muscular take on the classic bent Bulldog, featuring the Irish marque's penchant for robust, stout proportions with its thick, sturdy shank bearing almost as much visual weight as the bowl. In a way, it's a diamond-shanked companion to the Irish marque's signature "999" Rhodesian, both designs featuring a squat bowl, the same low-slung disposition, and a set of beadlines around their tapered rims just above the tight transition. The "80s" also serves as a bent alternative to Peterson's "150" straight Bulldog for smokers who prefer a downturned stem for easy clenching, yet prefer the masculine look and feel of such a timeless design and the iconic Peterson aesthetic.
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 spigot mount with the Rusticated finish, completed by a jet-black acrylic stem with a fishtail mouthpiece.-Truett Smith
