    Wish this was a better pic, but here is my restored Peterson pre-republic. Just noticing I need to polish up that band again. I'm almost positive the stem is original, never seen a stem like this before. The end turned white in bleach. Anyone know anything about this stem?

    My newest Peterson arrived today! Here it is, a smooth P-lip Barrel! Seems to be a good smoker, so far!

    My first pipe - seems ok so far. Honest - no Gandalf impersonating here! Bought because I like the look of the longer stemmed pipes, I figured even if I didn't like smoking it, it'd make a decent enough display pipe for the mantlepiece.

    My shortened Tankard and an estate System 317 I just picked up. I have a Killarney 264 on order and I have a want to add a larger System 305 Ebony before Christmas. I know I will also grab a Iceberg Starboard Sandblast and one from the Dracula range if I come across them.

    Very nice pipes, guys!

    six, some of those pipes went up on the trader and got sold. I picked up a Peter Heeschen, for a change of pace......pics to follow. Lovely grain on that spigot!

    Hey, I've got a few Petes. The new Kildare line from the collaboration of Sykes Wilford of smoking pipes and Peterson. Fine smokers too.

    The pipe eases you into the present moment - savor your pipe & you'll savor this moment.

    Love my Petes. I have two B11 bent brandies, a Kapet author, a Killarney 999 P-Lip, and an Around the World/Ireland which is
    a bent bulldog (a honey). I've just ordered -- as the result of being re-educated on Group 1 small bowled pipes on Forum -- a yacht/zulu
    rusticated Belgique. None of the ones I've owned have any quality problems. They are all solid, well-drilled, great smokers.

    Petersons are really favorite of many many people. And in some way it surprises me.

    At least here in Italy, sometimes Peterson are seen like less interesting, because produced "indutrially", they are not the work of an artisan (which is somehow false, they are not hand carved one by one, but the rest of the work is made by hand). And also because they produce more affordable pipes, and not only high end. The same goes for Savinelli, so it's not anything "patriotic".

    Personally, I've yet to find a Peterson (be it an high grade or an entry level) that doesn't smoke well. They are drilled very well, they are painted (when they are) very well, and the silverwork is wonderful (silverwork is totally made by hand). The only difference I noticed between high grades and entry level is that some entrylevel pipes need more time to become good smokers than the high end. Not always, but often, at least in my Petersons. Probably it's the different quality of the briars used ? The paint work? I really don't know. What I know is that even an entry level will smoke wonderfully after a little time, and this is not granted with all the pipe producers. So I really love the Peterson brand.

    Here is a tris of shape 107, one of my favorites, the chubby billard. From top to low a Rosslare, a Maigret, and an old Tyrone in good company with Dunhill 965 Mixture...

    castellarius - very nice pipes, love the photography too.

    Nice to know you're a fan of Petes. I am too, even though it seems of late their Q/C has been a bit shaky. All in all (save one or two incidents), I've had excellent luck with mine and they do smoke exceptionally well.

    Here is a Peterson Sherlock Holmes "The Original" rusticated from 1988

    And here is a Royal Irish Silver Mounted

    Six, unfortunately I've heard too some complaints about some new Petes.I've read that they have higher sales and that it's not easy for them to find good quality briar to satisfy the higher request...Personally I would play another game...we only build excellent pipes, so they can be a little scarce...
    Oh well one more reason to hunt estate Peterson in good shape (Im waiting for a System Deluxe from 1963...)

    Here is the updated version of my Petes:

    Top Left to Right: Kildare 999 and Kapet 03
    Bottom Left to Right: Irish Sea 68 and Killarney Red 69

    And closeup:

    By far my favorite is the Kildare 999, but I do have a Rosslare 999 on my Christmas wishlist.

    Got another Peterson in the mail today, previously owned by the esteemed kashmir and he gave me a tin of tobacco free of charge. Great guy, went along with to send the pipe to sweden although his ebay ad said US only. "Big ups."

    It's a wonderful smoker, if you ever get the chance to buy an estate from him, do it. He really knows how to take care of a pipe.

    As a Peterson collector, I have quite a few Petes, but I've chosen these three to "show off."

    This one is the anchor of my collection -- a 1904 Patent, in pristine condition...

    This one is a Peterson "special" dating to 1980. It is likely one-of-a-kind -- I have never seen another Pete like it. A gold mounted Straight Grain bent Dublin...

    And, finally, because I am especially partial to the Peterson Mark Twain series, here's the 1985 gold mounted commemorative edition...

    My Petes are two bent brandy B11's, a Killarney ebony with silver-colored bands, and a Shannon; a Killarney Rhody 999;
    a bent bulldog Around the World commemorative for Ireland with a Celtic Cross on the band; and a Kapet author rusticated
    with a nickel band. The Rhody is my only P-Lib; I like it, but one is sufficient. No quality problems. Petes are rock sturdy,
    for me.

    I bought this Kinsale XL23 off a guy on BoB forum ( the one the the Hitler Moderators ) for $45.00 and it is my nightly Penzance pipe. I love the feel of it as it is so smooth and rounded off, like holding a smooth golf ball in my hands. I won't ever get rid of this one, as my son will inherit this.

    I am surprised that no one has a "House" pipe from Peterson yet.

    I have a dozen in my pipe cabinet. Here are the pictures I have so far.

    An Aran B5. This was my first Peterson and will always hold a place in my heart.

    An Aran 265.

    An Aran 05

    A Killarney Red Stain 106

    A Dalkey 106

    Peterson Pipe of the Year 2011 Rusticated

    Peterson Pipe of the year 2012 Smooth

    Dracula 03 (with box)

    Kinsale XL23 (the Kinsale or lower end version of the LeStrade from one of the Sherlock Holmes series')

    Rosslare Classic XL02

    A rather poor picture of my Killarney Ebony 80s (I'll probably take another better pic when I take one of my new system pipe).

    That's my collection so far, minus the new System Standard 314 Rusticated that I haven't photographed yet. Can't wait to add to the collection. I LOVE Peterson of Dublin pipes!

    Here are two beautiful but very hard to find Petersons: the Peterson 140th Anniversary aka "Charles Peterson's Favorite" and the Darwin Deluxe. Both are straight grained which is also rare for Peterson.

    This is an extremely rare 1899 Peterson's Patent Magnum (gothic D hallmark) in near-mint condition next to a Deluxe System 2s for size comparison. Made just eight years after Charles Peterson was awarded the patent for his famous system design, it's possible that this pipe was actually made by Charles Peterson himself! This is the ultimate pipe to sit back and enjoy a good book with and is the crown jewel of my Peterson collection.

    Here is my Peterson I received for free. It was absolutely disgusting: dirty bowl and very oxidized stem. Sent pics to the owner after I finished it and he didn't believe it was the same pipe.
