  • Hi Brian,
    The ICPCR show has to be heaven for a pipe smoker. I’m glad you got the room that you wanted. It is a good question if internet has superseded trade shows. To me, it will always be the RTDA show.
    Tom Palmer, as owner and directing manager, has done a great job at Peterson. I am not a fan of the system pipe nor the P-lip. I have several Peterson pipes in my collection, all with fishtail stems. They are mainly from the Sherlock Holmes series.
    Music – William C. Green, “New Orleans” – “a quarter for gasoline” will not get you very far today. It must be an older song.
    Rant – What can I say, I agree.
    Good Show,

  • Tom Palmer is such a nice man and obviously a competent entrepreneur since Peterson is going as strong as ever. I can attest to the veracity of the story about the man with the Peterson logo tattoed on his calf because I was there. I wrote about this in “In Search of Pipe Dreams” (P. 149) Brian did a great job interviewing Tom, as always, and now I am going to sit back, relax and smoke a P-lip Sherlock Holmes pipe, which I find a wonderful change of pace periodically.

  • Another great show. It is possible that the IPCPR’s glory days are in the rear view mirror. It is something that is coming to all trade shows.
    Loved the Tom Palmer interview. He just comes across as a man of integrity with deep roots to Ireland. My great-grandparents came to America from the Old Sod. Apparently Peterson offers some rather high end pipes that are very well thought of amongst aficionados.
    Music was okay.
    Exercising is a good thing and if you can figure out a way to walk and smoke a pipe good on you. I can’t do that so I would have to take a decent cigar. Sadly it may not be long before you can’t smoke outside except on your own property.

  • This episode was particularly good – Peterson are an iconic brand and I loved the inisights into the company. I’m glad Peterson are still going strong and long may they continue to do so.
