SPECIAL BULLETIN
Terracotta Spigot Drops this Friday, 7/28/2023 at 6pm EDT.

999

I do believe we have the second installment of the new vulcanite stems with the release of Friday’s Terracotta Spigot. I don’t have much advance information, but the one-pager seen below seems to imply the fact and the buttons and slim profiles are nothing we’ve seen in vulcanite before now. They look really, really crisp.

What this means for F/T fans is along the same lines as what the new P-Lip vulcanite meant for the Short Army released just a few weeks back: improved engineering, better ergonomics, higher quality rod and less turbulence.

01

The Terracotta Spigot’s stem is longer than what we’re accustomed to seeing in most lines, giving a fresh new look to every shape in the line. I’m including a partial vertical gallery here to give you a leisurely chance to look over what will be on offer.

I don’t have photos to share of four great shapes on offer, so be aware they will be in the drop: the 03 bent ball, the 05 small calabash, the 106 [longer-shank] billiard, and the 221 small bent billiard .

As is always the case, I imagine there will be fewer of some shapes than others, so I’m in hopes that if you can see most of what’s going to be available you may have a better chance of obtaining it at the drop.

306

The Terracotta stain has been around for decades—back to the beginning of the Dublin era c. 1990, if memory serves—and this has always been a great favorite with me. This release looks to be a gloss finish, but it may simply be the photography. I believe the Deluxe Classics range is in satin, but again I could be mistaken.

XL02

MSRP is $280, which I believe will put the price at SPC around $200-220, but I’m just guessing!

All these pipes look awsome, but I miss the P-lip. I hope Laudisi will not forget this great improvement of Charles Peterson. Thanks for my regular Sunday pipe pleasure, Mark…

Fantastic looking pipes, and with nice looking grain and finish!!! As already mentioned, the P-Lip is missed. However, the F/T button does compliment the spigot stem very well. Overall, this looks to be a great release of pipes. I hope everyone obtains their favorite on drop day!

I’m encouraged to see what appears to be a trend with greater focus on the quality of the stem work. My experience with PLIP stems has all been positive since I purchased my first Peterson in 2018. Unfortunately the experience with Peterson fishtail stems over the same time period has been more miss that hit. (Granted, I barely qualify as a journeyman pipe smoker, so much of the blame for these failures may rest upon me.)

My problem with Spigots is that they make the pipe too long; to me, they feel unbalanced. These are otherwise beautiful; nice wood.

I totally forgot about the jars! Keep me posted if extras are ordered 🙂 The terracotta finish on these pipes are beautiful! The B11 and B10 are sweet looking!

Agreed on the B10 – that shape has never caught my eye until now. The spigot and long stem really bring out its beauty.

Yeah, these are wonderful. Yet, I am an exclusive p-lip smoker, so I will wait & see if they make those.
Thanks for the beautiful glimpses!
