Hi. Ah Petersons one of the more deviding of the brands. People like me go nuts for them and others seem to think they're in league with the devil and make their pipes out of cardboard carved by drunken lunatics.I've been a pipe smoker for 59 years. I'm partial to Peterson's pipes, but I have and smoke a great many other brands as well. Looking forward to some friendly interchange, and I'm often in need of advice.
