Peterson: Cara Sandblasted (6) Fishtail Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-85972
With a diverse range of straight Billiard shapes, Peterson caters to every smoker's personal preferences, ensuring that there's a Peterson Billiard for everyone. In the "06" (or "6" as it's sometimes stamped), the Irish marque presents one of their more slimmed down iterations — less robust than the "X105," "106," and "107" while still maintaining Peterson's conventional muscularity more than, say, the "15." It's a perfect, middle-of-the-road choice for those interested in something that tows the line between the robust Irish aesthetic and traditional English style.
The Cara series from Peterson presents the classic ebony and silver dress pipe motif. Like a formal tuxedo, the black finish is contrasted elegantly by a sterling silver band at the shank end, the crisp flash of silver accentuated further by the stummel's sandblasted texture. The Irish marque is renowned for its use of sterling — an accenting material that's been intertwined with pipemaking for over a century — and each silversmith spends years mentoring under the factory's senior craftsmen, having developed a decades long tradition of quality silverwork. The Cara series, named after the Irish word for "friend," boasts the classic, stylish aesthetic all at an impressively accessible price point for silver-accented pieces, making for a true smoking companion.-Truett Smith
