Peterson: Dracula Sandblasted (127) Fishtail Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-86011
When first released, the "127" shape was designated as the "D15." Originally produced for Peterson's Danish distributor, Larsen and Peterson, around 1996, the "D" line focuses on traditional Danish shaping, creating shapes that are more slender and elegantly curved compared to the hearty Irish style typically personified in Peterson's portfolio. The "D15," or "127" now, is an angled take on the bent Dublin — the transition sharply curled to create a prominent, almost pointed heel below the flaring bowl. Per Danish shaping cues, the lines and curves are soft and sleek, the form marked by trim proportions and a forward-urging dynamism.
One of the Irish marque's most striking and colorful series within their standard fare, Peterson's Dracula line draws inspiration from Bram Stoker's classic novel to offer a color palette worthy of the Count himself. Here, a jet-black sandblast adorns the bowl coinciding with the inky swirls overtop the blood-red acrylic stem. A regal band of bright nickel separates stem from stummel and juxtaposes an elegant appeal against the rest of the piece's spooky aesthetic — similar to Dracula's own aristocratic, yet horrific nature. Like Peterson's Sherlock Holmes series, the Dracula line is a worthy homage to historic literature from one of the pipe industry's most historic marques.-Truett Smith
