Peterson: Dracula Sandblasted (230) Fishtail Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-100638
With a slightly tapered and more rounded style of bowl, Peterson's "230" bent Billiard forgoes the cylindrical, tubular shaping cues typically seen from the Irish marque. That said, Peterson's conventionally muscular style of shank and transition is still clearly evident. Despite these hearty proportions, however, the "230" remains a compact pipe in terms of overall length, well suited to hands-free clenching and an excellent choice for travel.
One of the Irish marque's most striking and colorful series within their standard fare, Peterson's Dracula line draws inspiration from Bram Stoker's classic novel to offer a color palette worthy of the Count himself. Here, a jet-black sandblast adorns the bowl coinciding with the inky swirls overtop the blood-red acrylic stem. A regal band of bright nickel separates stem from stummel and juxtaposes an elegant appeal against the rest of the piece's spooky aesthetic — similar to Dracula's own aristocratic, yet horrific nature. Like Peterson's Sherlock Holmes series, the Dracula line is a worthy homage to historic literature from one of the pipe industry's most historic marques.-Truett Smith
