    I have not purchased a "nice" pipe yet and was really interested in the Peterson 302. Does anyone have any opinions about this pipe? Is it a nice pipe for it's price range?

    The number, 302, indicates the shape. Which model is the pipe? In any event, you will likely be pleased with the pipe. I'm a believer in the saying that ya never regret buying quality. BTW I have a Peterson ordered and it should arrive in a couple of weeks. I can hardly wait.

    If your a guy who really loves the cake in the bowl and is a true believer in the "break in" process a Peterson is difficult but worth it. Mine still has no cake but none the less smokes well.

    I've heard others say their Peterson took a long time to break in as well. Don't let this discourage you however, go for it. I personally like my Savinellis better.

    Only smoke Pete's, (and a few clays).
    All of them are treated similarly... give her a smear of honey, let it dry ove night, and and start smoking.

    I have five...a 312, 305, B10, 69 kapmeer and an ancient K-briar. The first three are P-lip, last two are fish-tails. All smoke good. I would recommend them as a good intermediate pipe, suited well for a new piper. As you are just getting started, hold off on the P-lip models...they can have a bit of a learning curve.
