    How's the size on that? I was looking into buying an Aran 150, but the chamber just looked too small in the pictures, but I find I never can tell unless I have it in my hand.

    Edit: and speaking of Bville I was at the Edgewater tonight. :D

    Classic stuff.

    I find most petes a bit small - I purchase xl series or the year pipes.

    Don't be surprised if it takes a half dozen or more smokes to have that pipe working well Bryon.

    Great pipe, that Peterson was my first pipe purchase. I enjoy it when i don't have a lot of time to smoke a larger pipe.

    Hi,

    Bulldogs have always been a favourite shape of mine - but I found the cheaper ones could smoke hot because the wall were to thin.

    You shouldn't have that problem with your Peterson - it has a lovely solid look to it. Though it's Irish it has a classic British look - now all you need is a Destroyer so'd you can stand on the bridge and smoke it while ordering "Number One, stand by to ram the enemy midships!"

    Happy smoking,

    Gerry
