Peterson: Dublin Filter Rusticated (B10) Fishtail (9mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-84400
Like all of Peterson's "B" family shapes, which merge elements of several designs to create attractive and unique hybrids, the Irish marque's "B10" occupies a pretty eccentric spot — not exactly a classic shape, but featuring classical components to its overall design. If you look hard enough, you can find hints of the bent Dublin, Calabash, and Rhodesian shapes alike, yet the overall design still comes off cohesive and well-knit.
Peterson has offered a line of filtered pipes since 1947, evolving over the decades in name and finish: Since 1997 the Dublin Filter comprised the Irish marque's only filtered series, with the Army Filter introduced in 2021, and all pipes within these lines are drilled to hold a 9mm filter, (Peterson's proprietary charcoal filters being offered in packs of 150- and 40-count boxes). Often, when a marque features filtered versions of their standard shapes, certain designs must be slightly altered to accommodate wider drilling; however, Peterson's signature aesthetic hews toward more robust shanks and transitions, making for a seamless cross-over between filtered and non-filtered renditions of the same shape. Presented in a rugged, dark-stained rustication, with lighter hues flecking the texture's peaks to match twin nickel accent rings, the Dublin Filter line here displays a handsome aesthetic that remains both striking and traditionally reserved.-Truett Smith
