    I think the only way to make up for the 20 day wait is to smoke it 1x per day for 20 days :flowers:

    Nice! I was thinking about getting a Squire when looking for my Pete. I'm glad someone got one and can give us the low down. Might just have to get another.
    I hope you enjoy it as much as I'm enjoying mine. It's become my after dinner pipe.
    Cheers.

    I'm smoking my first Pete too about three or four weeks now. Interested to know how you are breaking it in. I love mine but as a regular cob smoker the past few years, I'm finding a learning curve with the Pete. No complaints, just differences. My Pete has already proved that it will be a companion for a long time.

    It was pre-carbonized or whatever it is called, so I just fill half the bowl the first few times, and then just smoke it regularly afterwards, I guess I was lucky I didn't have to do any treatments and so on since I hear stories about Petersons being difficult to break in due to them being dipped in stain so the inside of the bowl has stain you need to get rid of.

    Good buy! https://pipesmokersforum.com/forum/public/style_emoticons/default/goodjob.gif
    Yup I've got four petes and one of them had nasty stain inside the shank which took forever to take out! Another had stain in the bowl ON TOP OF the pre-carbonized finish! But then, all's well that ends well - they are all good smokers now with thick cakes in the bowl and in the shank, and I love my Petes! I'm sure you will too :bing:

    I absolutely love my peterson and I've had it for years, with that being said you should enjoy that pipe for quite a while.

    I'm liking this one so much I almost feel like i have to buy another Peterson, I'm keeping an eye one a system 303 304 or 305, although I'm a bit hesitant about the P-lip, as I like to clench pipes that doesn't weigh too much, and then I use those soft rubber bits.

    You could try a 317. This I have found to be a lot lighter than my 312 and weight wise a lot lighter to carry in the mouth. I don't mind the plip and if you cut the end off it would be much like a fishtail anyway (visualize)
    They are a tad thicker but so are some fishtails, give it a go.
