Got this little guy about 20 mins ago.
Peterson donegal rocky.
Sorry for poor picture quality
I know what you mean about the Peterson obsession. I have about 2 dozen of them, and just sold 5. They are not at all perfect pipes, but I love them, especially those with the P-lip.
I've got a couple more Petes on my PAD list too.
Next pipe on the list is a Pete church warden.
After that I'm thinking about a nording giant sized bowl.
I've been told I need to venture out from Pete to try some
Savinellis or stanwells..... I just like Petes so much!! :/
I am a fan as well. I stumbled on one, but again, its a K&P and not a true Sterling Silver Peterson, but all in all, its an awesome pipe!
I love them too! Great pipe for the money!
Yep, they look great and smoke even better.
I'm thinking I'll make this one for Virginian bacy
I'm pretty sure that's EXACTLY the subject line I used when I got my last Peterson That's a great shape and a fine finish. Enjoy it!
On my list to buy is the smooth 2011 pipe of the year and some 1981 mark twains.
It's certainly worth exploring... but I always come back to Peterson it seems. They make up about half of my modest collection.
I'm a big Pete fan as well. Always on the lookout pre-republic ones.
I'd sure go along with trying a Savinelli. I have 3 Savinellis and 1 Peterson in my "good " pipe rotation. I loved the Peterson until I got a Savinelli--now I am totally converted. No comparison for me.
I don't know what it is about them, but Petes always turn my head. There are a bunch of them that I want, badly.
Petes are not just pipes.They have souls ..did you know that ?
Actually a little disappointed with this Pete, not with it's smoking ability (it smokes just like all my others) but it doesn't seem as durable as my others.
After the first smoke tye mouth piece had several scratches on it from my teeth (now I dont hold it with my teeth clenched tight) I handled it the same my other 4 Pete's (which have nothing more than a minor mark or two on the stem from teeth marks, all of which have been smoked a signifcant amount).
But this one,
It was cheaper than most Pete's I have ($100, as oppose to my others which ran around $150 per besides my Pete outdoor)
I think this may become my pipe I take out camping and hunting etc, seeing its bound to get more scratched up I figure it should become an outdoor working pipe.
I've got a few and have been eying a tankard for my next one.
