    Peterson isn't (obviously) a British pipe, but there's no Peterson-specific board. Plus, this is part of the little photo series I signed myself up for a couple weeks ago. So, I'll put it here for now and let the mods decide.

    ------

    In the mid 1990's Peterson re-issued a small line of pipes that were replicas of notable shapes they produced in the early 20th century. This is one of them. No name as such, or shape number, but it's obviously a Dublin. (It originally came with a P-lip, so please disregard the tortoise shell replacement.) It was even provided with a period-correct replica case. The wood used also appears to have been fussily chosen. All in all, quite a decent tribute. (Normally I don't go for "fake history" type stuff, but this one felt right enough to silence the squawking in that part of my brain.)

    Super-comfy, and smokes spectacularly well.

    See, why can't Peterson make pipes like that more often?

    Tobacco's a help because it clears the mind
    But like all your friends it is vilified
    They always say, the right amount's fine

    Because they are too busy making awful Halloween and summertime themed pipes

    Peterson did very well with the Antiques Collection. Mark Irwin did a blog entry on the set:

    Yours is the old 31S shape. The P-lip stem would have had the extension for the space-fitting mount. Your tortoise stem looks pretty good on that shape!

    I have the 1910 Bulldog, which came with a chewed up stem. George was kind enough to send me his OEM P-lip stem which was replaced on his pipe.

    These show up on Ebay occasionally, and have held their value well.

    On a related note, member "Rockville Pete" posted an original 1903 Patent pipe here a few years ago. Pete lives just South of me, but somehow, we've never yet been able to meet.

    The Peterson 2017 Pipe of the Year is a credible rendition of the Peterson Jap series of days gone by; perhaps it is a sign they are hearkening back to their older designs.

    Very cool. I like the stem replacement btw. I wouldn’t say fake history. More like a tribute to the good ole days.

    We do have a Pete specific board. Some neat stuff too.

    When Peterson gets it right, the do a wonderful job. Partly in the eye of the beholder, which music do you dance to? These pipes are extra fine.

    Just shows that a pipe will last forever if you take care of it.
