Peterson: Aran Smooth Nickel Mounted (150) Fishtail Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-86330
Peterson's "150" straight Bulldog is a pert, upright rendition that fits in perfectly with the Irish firm's characteristically muscular shaping style. It's quite the forthright take on the classic English shape, but in keeping with the marque's tradition, it features an incredibly robust, crisp diamond shank. The bowl wears a set of well-defined beadlines and displays a firm heel underneath, though it remains a touch leaner than other, more squat renditions of the shape, making the "150" an ideal choice for those who prefer a taller, trimmer style of Bulldog bowl.
One of Peterson's most traditional finishes, the Aran presents a color palette of chocolatey stain and jet-black stem. In the smooth iteration, it highlights the briar's natural grain pattern with handsome reservation — not distracting from the form's shape yet, at the same time, offering enough definition and detail to remain intriguing and individual, accented here with a flashy nickel band to add some formal panache and elegant appeal.-Truett Smith
