Peterson: Aran Smooth Nickel Mounted (264) Fishtail Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-89235
Long and lean, with a Billiard bowl perched on the end of an elongated, oval shank, the "264" is a thoroughly traditional take on the Canadian and is a noticeable departure from Peterson's signature muscular, tubular style. It's also quite similar in execution to the marque's "265" oval-shanked Billiard, though here, the shank is lengthened significantly and the stem shortened. Such a Canadian rendition is an ideal choice for those who prefer trimmer, sleeker designs but want to experience a shape chart standard interpreted by one of the most respected names in the business.
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
