Peterson: Donegal Rocky (85) Fishtail Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-84828
Joining Peterson's "86" and "87" shapes, the "85" is a straight Apple rendition with a plump, rounded bowl. Out of those Apple iterations, though, the "85" is the most svelte and streamlined version, forgoing the often muscular proportions championed by the Irish marque in favor of a sleek and streamlined motif that prioritizes a petite overall size and lightweight profile. As such, it's ideal for those who appreciate smaller interpretations of classic shapes and perfect as a reliable travel companion and on-the-go pipe.
Named after County Donegal in northwest Ireland, Peterson's Donegal Rocky series offers one of the Irish firm's most distinctive and immediately recognizable finishes. Much like the mountainous region it's inspired by, the rustication style of the Donegal Rocky line is incredibly craggy and provides plenty of stimulating texture, transforming any pipe that wears it into a rugged workhorse smoker. Peterson's first rusticated finish, the Donegal Rocky dates back to 1945, and is presented here with a bright nickel band offering a touch of refinement against the dark, red-tinged stain of the stummel.-Truett Smith
