Check out some of these new Petes that smokingpipes got in. I've never seen this line before, is it new? The line is a set of two pipes, a bent brandy and a straight Rhodesian. They feature a sterling silver band and an interesting acrylic stem with a kind of marbleized "peaches and cream" coloration to it. I think the stem is a bit on the feminine side, perhaps a tip of the hat to the line's namesake, but the sturdy, somewhat masculine shaping (after all, they're Petersons) does a good job of balancing the feminine/masculine qualities of the pipes, making them quite suitable for anybody who thinks they look sharp. Anyway, what do you all think of these? I'm not usually a huge fan of most of Peterson's rusticated pipes, but the rusticated versions of this line (they have two in stock) are rather nice, and I think the smooth is really gorgeous. Unfortunately at significantly over 300 dollars I surely can't justify buying the smooth set, but the rusticated versions are under 250, so maybe if I save up and I don't end up buying some expensive stuff at the pipe show (AND these are still available at that time) I could get some later. Whether you like them or not, I think these are some of the more interesting and unique presentations I've seen from Peterson.
