Peterson: Irish Harp (608) Fishtail Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-88275
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."
Marked by a smooth, walnut stain and acrylic stem to match, the Irish Harp line from Peterson poses an elegant dress pipe-like aesthetic, the bowl and mouthpiece separated by a generous band of sterling silver. Peterson's craftsmen spend years training under the factory's senior smiths, and the Irish marque is esteemed for its use of sterling silver. In the Irish Harp series, Peterson pays tribute to one of Ireland's most iconic symbols: the Celtic harp or cláirseach in Irish. The traditional instrument is here emblazoned on the silver accent, celebrating Peterson's Irish origins while simultaneously showcasing their superlative silverwork.-Truett Smith
