Rattray's: Old Perth Contrast (33) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-599-4239
A shape found exclusively in the Old Perth line, Rattray's "33" design is a trim and elegant Cutty interpretation that comprises the Scottish marque's Old Perth line in a variety of finishes. The series celebrates Charles Rattray's tobacco company in Perth, Scotland, which was founded in 1903 and would later become one of the largest tobacco companies in the British Isles. The Cutty shape is the perfect form for such a historic pipe series, hearkening back to the style of clay pipes that were common in taverns hundreds of years ago, long before briar was discovered as a viable medium for pipe making, and it's a design many pipe makers have continued to explore in the modern era. This rendition from the Scottish marque is slightly smaller than the long, willowy style associated with historic tavern pipes and features a forward-canted Egg-like bowl with a succinct heel spur, creating the Cutty's timelessly classic silhouette, and capped with sterling silver to match the shank's accent band. The "33" is a svelte, lightweight design that departs from Rattray's typically robust and muscular shaping style, with the stem's gentle downturn offering excellent balance for hands-free smoking.-Truett Smith
