    I don't have pics of all of my Petersons, but since I'm enjoying this one right now I thought it would be appropriate to post a pic. It's one of the 'Zippo" 303 pipes...

    These are all Petes. I have sold some of them and edited the Peterson collection down to 15 briars and 7 meers. The ones I have left are fine smokers. I recommend the natural finish with McConnell's Scottish Cake. If the pipe is made of very aged briar (some are, some are not) and well broken in it is a remarkable smoke.

    Those were just the Petes on my desk, at the time. There were others. I had a problem with one or two of the spigots falling apart at times. Their meers are the best I have tried. I have the complete set and would not part with them. They have them made in Turkey to their design and the plumbing is superior to any other meers I have seen.

    It says 'made in Dublin' and on the other side, '950'. I like this pipe. It is so old no matter which tobacco I use, it all just sort of tastes like the pipe. Its like it has made up its mind and doesn't want to change.

    1979 Pete System Star 305 a very special gift from Chris (gwtwbss)
    I smoke a little of everything in this pipe as it can't make up its mind and it smokes everything well, it's my only non dedicated pipe even my cobs are just for Lat blends. A great smoker.

    Some terrific herds of Petersons here. You gotta love em. I have five, but my favorites
    are the B11 bent brandies, and the Around the World bulldog commemorating Ireland.
    If you have a Peterson, you have a good smoking pipe.

    Wow! Some amazing Peterson's here, getting ideas on what to get next over here Here are my four Peterson's which I love and smoke regularly. They are a Killarney Red 150, a Standard System Army Mount small 317, a Peterson System Army Mounted Smooth 31 and a Peterson Harp 999 with cumberland finish stem. Photos below, and sorry for my DVD boxsets in the background but I needed them to cover up the horrible state of my desktop:

    My favourite is the Harp 999 though, love the way it sits in the mouth and feels in the hand, but I love them all.

    I'm in Calgary right now, walked past a store called international pipe and cigar, walked in, turns out it's closing. The shop owners mother almost got me to buy a kind of churchwarden looking pipe as everything was more than 50% off, but then at the last minute I was thinking this really looks like a chick pipe, then looked closely and saw it was called a lady lulu. I expressed my admiration for this peterson though in the case, she said I could have it for the same price, 49$. I decided to get it, so she told her son she was selling it to me for 49$, he's like mom!! I can't sell it that cheap I paid more for it than that! So he tells me he has to charge me more, would I pay 60$? I'm like of course it's a peterson. Just found it online for 125 pounds, my "Sunday" pipe, I think this is going to be for Christmas cheer dedicated. Plus she threw in a nice pipe lighter to boot I was going to buy.
    Here she is, peterson great explorers series "shackleton"

    Nice pipe Andrew, and a great deal.

    I wish I had a good shot of my favourite Peterson. It was the first pipe I bought - a Peterson house pipe with a solid black blast. I bought it in Dublin at the Peterson store and, man, I love that pipe. While I have seen Pete house pipes on this side of the Atlantic, I have yet to stumble upon one with a black blast.

    This was the first pipe I re-stained. I lost most of the markings on it while sanding, but that didn't mean much to me. It is a 301, Made in the Republic of Ireland:

    My other one is a pre-republic I picked up in my first big estate score. It is a System Premier 313, tiny bowl(less than .7 in diameter), and I don't have a picture of it restored so here she is before I cleaned her up:
