Ladies and Gentlemen: I'm looking for a good price (and availability) for a Peterson 408 Fishtail. I've heard either that Peterson is great or Peterson is horrible. Has anyone had a 408? How does it fare? I've heard to stay clear of a Killarney because the finish can bubble. Has anyone else experienced this? By way of further background, I am a relative upstart. I currently have three pipes. A Savinelli Trevi Slightly Bent Apple 626 (Italy), a Stanwell Bulldog 32 (Denmark)--given to me by our very own Sonarman, and an MM Cob. I've thought about grabbing up some other choices that others may deem too "popular" but thought it would be good to add an Irish pipe (Peterson) and a British pipe (Invicta?--no I cannot afford a Dunhill). Anyway, my stable would have some of the better standards in the world from regions that are known to love pipes, make sense? Please let me know too whether there is another maker I should consider. Your recommendations are greatly valued.
