Hello, I joined the forum mainly to ask about this Peterson pipe bowl I got off ebay. The reason I’m having to ask is because I've no experience with Peterson pipes. What I'd like to know is if it's a genuine Peterson, because there are a few things which make me wonder whether or not it is. So my first question is: Is there even such a thing as a fake Peterson? The main thing that concerns me is that I've had quite a good look round and can't find a Peterson with the kind of finish this one has. It looks like the whole things had a going over with a tiny chisel. Can any one point me in the direction of another example of this type of finish? Here’s some pictures: Basically I just need to know if its going to be worth my time and money making this thing usable. It was only a few quid, so it doesn’t matter if it's not! Also, any info anybody could give me about this pipe would be great. Thanks.
