    The big 'un is a "Hand-Made," the little 'un is a size 12 1/2. The stinger in each is exactly the same size!

    So you like these Super Petes too ehhhh? That biggun is quite the handful and the lil'one is nicely petite without being too petite. Cool pipes. Yeah, the stems should all basically be the same from pipe to pipe but the linkage to the stummel is the aesthetics/performance end of things. Where the stem is the "user interface" is (bet Ole Petey himself didn't know he was way ahead of his times :) ) ............so those should (I did say "should") all be the same or very similar within maker. Consistency is a very important "performance" point.

    Nice pipes, both built like tanks and I'd imagine very very nice smokes!

    You could use the little one as a ladle to fill the big one.

    Or if you ever run out of tobacco you could smoke the little one in the big one.

    Those House Pipes are something else. They really stand out if you see one in a shop. They're just impressive.

    Damn, is Peterson using burls from briar heaths that were fed a special steroid-laced fertilizer! That House Pipe is one seriously big honkin' big pipe. And I want one!

    Those Petersons look like mighty fine pipes.

    So what's the story with that stem/tenon design?

    Those are a "space fitting" tenon - cut on about 1 degree of angle, so you can ram 'em in tight anywhere from the African deserts to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro and get a good fit. Inside the shank there is a little space for condensation to gather (the Peterson System idea).
