Irish Estate Peterson: Aran Smooth Nickel Mounted (XL02) P-Lip Unsmoked Pipe. Condition is “New”. Shipped with USPS First Class.
The “XL02” is, in essence, a fuller-bodied approach to the beloved “03” bent Apple, with added muscularity to the shank and transition. The visual weight of the shank relative to that of the bowl is a hallmark of Peterson’s approach to shaping and distinguishes it from what we consider the classic English design of pipe making. It’s a great example of the marque’s signature aesthetic — the stout shank and voluptuous bowl blending well with the slender angle of the stem and tight transition.
One of Peterson’s most traditional finishes, the Aran presents a color palette of chocolatey stain and jet-black stem. In the smooth iteration, it highlights the briar’s natural grain pattern with handsome reservation — not distracting from the form’s shape yet, at the same time, offering enough definition and detail to remain intriguing and individual, accented here with a flashy nickel band to add some formal panache and elegant appeal.
