Peterson Rosslare Classic Sandblast Series:
The Peterson Rosslare is one of those iconic pipes that every smoker drools over in the catalogue, with a “one day i’ll treat myself” in the vain hope that their partner’s ear wigging and will buy it for them. If there was a Pipe that should go on the Irish flag it would surely be the Rosslare. Many pipemakers try and mimic it’s style but nobody gets it quite as good as Peterson.
There are a few finishes in the Rosslare collection, the classic sandblast is not the most expensive but it’s got to be one of our favourites. Just the contrast of the Amber stem against the rich Black Sandblast is almost breathtaking.
It’s not often that Peterson do true sandblasting that follows the grain as appose to carving a pattern but the quality of the Briar used in the Rosslare series just cries out for it. True sandblasting defines the grain and especially on these dark bowls it just looks awesome when done well!
Peterson 999 Shape:
The Peterson Rosslare 999 is a half bent briar pipe, with instantly recognisable styling. The Bulldog shape has two grooves around the peak of the taper. It is almost apple shaped, which makes for a comfortable hold and tapers more towards the base. The two grooves as-well as being attractive increase the surface area at the thickest part of the bowl, helping the bowl cool in the same way as a car radiator. This in turn helps keep the smoke cool throughout the pipe.
The bowl of the pipe has been expertly sandblasted by Peterson skilled craftsmen to follow the beautiful grain of the quality briar used for the Rosslare. The bowl is then finished with a rich black stain before the 925 hallmarked Silver band and stunning amber stem are added. The Rosslare classic sandblast must be one of the most stunning pipes in Petersons range.
The pattern on the stem is unique to every pipe and varies considerably so every pipe is a one off and will not be exactly as pictured.
The standard mouthpiece for most pipe manufacturers. The fishtail has the exit hole in the end of the mouthpiece. The end of the mouthpiece is flat, which some people find easier to grip, and suits the smoker who doesn’t get on with the p.lip style.
