The Peterson Aran Rusticated Tobacco Pipe Shape XL90 is among their largest, most robustly built bent Billiard shapes. This design captures Peterson’s House Style with its spacious fire hole, stout insulating walls, and robust style of shank and transition. Its generous bend keeps it well balanced when clenched, making it a fan-favorite across a number of ranges and series.
About the Series
First appearing in 1965, the Aran has since become a staple of Peterson’s Classic range, offering a variety of traditional, non-System Peterson shapes at an accessible price. The Aran Rusticated adds a rugged, masculine look to the series, distinguished by its craggy, hand-carved rustication and earthy walnut stain.
About the Range
Since Peterson’s inception, they’ve offered a range of specific tiers suited to their customers’ tastes and price requirements. Their Classic range represents non-System pipes crafted for the Everyman, unique and timeless designs that capture their House Style and quality craftsmanship at a price any smoker can enjoy. Rather than relegating production to one or two lines, Peterson offers a variety of styles, shapes, and finishes among these entry-level series, including traditional navy mounts (flush-fitting stems), P-Lip mouthpieces, and army mounts.
