    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.

    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'm pretty sure that's EXACTLY the subject line I used when I got my last Peterson :D That's a great shape and a fine finish. Enjoy it!

    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.

    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,
    [​IMG]
    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.
