Peterson: Derry Rusticated (X105) Fishtail Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-87000
The "106," "107," and "X105" are all robust variations of the straight Billiard from Peterson. While each one showcases the Irish marque's conventional robustness at the shank and transition, this "X105" trims down that aesthetic just a tad by comparison, presenting a more traditionally English style. That said, it still offers more substance than, say, the "06" or "15" iterations. Such a diverse portfolio of classic shapes allows Peterson to cater to all preferences of length, chamber depth, and weight — with the "X105" finding a perfect balance between extremes.
Similar to the Donegal Rocky series, Peterson's Derry line dresses pipes in a rugged rustication, but instead of a jet-black mouthpiece, the Derry features an acrylic stem of swirling chocolate and caramel tones. Named after the second largest city in Ireland, known for its distinctively hilly topography, this series appropriately dresses the stummel of each piece in a craggy, well-textured rustication with an earthy walnut stain over top. A bright nickel army mount completes the presentation, offering some aesthetic flash and allowing the pipe to be broken down easily for cleaning.-Truett Smith
