Peterson: Newgrange Spigot (6) Fishtail Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-101640
With a diverse range of straight Billiard shapes, Peterson caters to every smoker's personal preferences, ensuring that there's a Peterson Billiard for everyone. In the "06" (or "6" as it's sometimes stamped), the Irish marque presents one of their more slimmed down iterations — less robust than the "X105," "106," and "107" while still maintaining Peterson's conventional muscularity more than, say, the "15." It's a perfect, middle-of-the-road choice for those interested in something that tows the line between the robust Irish aesthetic and traditional English style.
Along with their signature shaping style, Peterson of Dublin is renowned for their silverwork. The journey of becoming a Peterson silversmith requires years of training and personal mentorship from the factory's senior craftsmen, and the superlative results testify to such a demanding, lengthy process — each worker having engineered his own mandrel to the extent that every metal accoutrement made is imprinted with the subtle, personal style of the one who machined it. Peterson's Spigot line was created in 1977, after discovering an old Peterson catalog from 1906 that pictured pipes with spigot mounts, and the series is among the best at showcasing the Irish marque's signature silver treatment, fitting sterling silver around both the shank end and stem base in a spigot-mount arrangement. The construction provides further reinforcement and durability and highlights even more sterling silver than would be used for a standard military mount. Presented here in the Newgrange Spigot finish, the flashy, regal metal is paired to a cumberland-hued acrylic stem, the red hues echoed by the smooth rim, and contrasted against the stummel's dark-stained sandblast.-Truett Smith
