Peterson: Christmas 2023 Sandblasted (86) Fishtail Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-029-105472

While both of Peterson's "87" and "86" shapes are straight Apples, this "86" hews closer to the classic English pipe chart standard. Where the "87" adds some of the Irish marque's signature muscularity about the shank and transition, this piece opts for a more svelte disposition, the shank running sleek and streamlined into the plump bowl. For those interested in a more trimly styled Peterson, the "86" Apple offers a touch less robustness and maintains a thoroughly traditional appeal.

Peterson's Christmas Pipes have been an annual tradition since 2009, the Irish marque dressing a selection of their iconic shapes in appropriately festive fashion. In recent years, Peterson has accented this series with copper, though for 2023, they showcase the skill of their silversmiths by accenting the pipes with broad bands of intricately etched silver. These silver bands feature inset beadlines around the Peterson logo and provide a wealth of contrast against the stummel's finish. In addition to the fine display of silverwork, these pipes exhibit Peterson's talent in the blasting cabinet by dressing the stummel in a craggy sandblast that's been stained a deep, rich red: evocative of some of the earliest sandblasts to appear in the pipe world. What results is a finish that is utterly timeless, reminiscent of pipes crafted in the early 20th century and embodying an elegant character that's endlessly charming.
