Peterson: Aran Rusticated (608) Fishtail Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-86855
While Peterson's signature shaping style is often described as muscular and robust, the Irish marque's portfolio boasts a diverse range of sizes within the same general design: The iconic "05" Bell/Calabash is made all the more grand in the "XL315"; the "03" bent Apple receives more palm-filling substance in the "XL02"; and the "65" bent Billiard is a trimmer option compared to the "X220" or "XL90." Such is the case with Peterson's "606" and "608" Pots — both display a similar profile and cater to the shape's characteristically broad and squat bowl, but the "608" here is scaled down a touch, making for a more lightweight, trimmer version of the "606."
One of Peterson's most traditional finishes, the Aran presents a color palette of chocolatey stain and jet-black stem. In this piece, the extra-craggy application presents raised peaks and dimpled grooves for a stimulating texture in hand, reminiscent of Peterson's rustications of old, and offers a no-nonsense aesthetic that's perfect for rugged, everyday use.-Truett Smith
