Peterson: Rua Gold Mounted (15) P-Lip Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-029-116305

Peterson's "15" is one of their lighter and trimmer straight Billiards, noticeably forgoing the Irish marque's conventionally robust and stout proportions. The "15" leans more towards the classic style often seen in vintage French briars with its shank and stem extended and slightly trimmed up to create a more slender, svelte appearance. It also scales back their signature muscular aesthetic and is an ideal option for anyone who appreciates Peterson's rich history and approach to pipe making, but who prefers their briars on the slimmer side.

Inspired by the madra rua, "red fox," of traditional Irish tales, Peterson's Rua finish is a crimson-and-black, contrast-stained sandblast. Not only is it the first of its kind from the Irish marque, it's also among the first from any pipe factory, with contrast stains almost exclusively seen across handmade artisan pipes. A contrast finish incorporates two different stain colors, and the labor-intensive, time-consuming process involves staining a pipe one color, sanding down or sandblasting the stummel, and then applying the second stain, with adequate time spent in between to allow each stain to fully settle into the briar. The result is a rich, two-toned motif that simultaneously reveals the briar's grain while also providing an intriguing, dramatic contrast between the two separate stains. As such, Peterson's Rua pipes capture an unparalleled aesthetic across Peterson's portfolio, bespeaking a deep commitment to quality craftsmanship and combining iconic Peterson shaping with modern finishing techniques. The Rua Gold Mounted line enhances the bespoke quality of the series by pairing its pipes with broad bands of gold at the junction, offering further contrast against the stummel's stunning finish.
