Peterson: Dublin Filter Rusticated (B11) Fishtail (9mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-84403
Though a part of Peterson's standard shape chart, the Irish marque's "B" shapes fall a bit outside of convention, each design being more eccentric compared to traditional pipe chart standards. In the case of the "B11," the Irish marque presents a flat-bottomed bent Brandy, affording the practical comforts of a bent pipe alongside the sturdy, upright posture of a sitter. The strongly tapered bowl showcases Peterson's voluptuous shaping style and also ensures an easy, ergonomic feel in hand.
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
