Peterson have a long standing reputation for thinking outside of the box and daring to go against the grain. (intentional pun) So for 2017 they really have taken this to a whole new level.
Centuries of pipe making has been devoted to producing immaculate pipes with light finished pipes being the cream of the crop as they highlight the grain and make for stunning pipes.
However Briar is a root and contains particles of grit and sand, so to get a finished pipe which does not require any filler is very rare.
Finished bowls are graded according to the aesthetic finish. The more visible flaws or filler the lower the grading with lower graded pipes finished with darker stains or rustic finishes.
However in the modern world we are all now starting to appreciate the character of flawed wood with knots and flaws being features. Our furniture is rustic so why not our pipes …………. well peterson have seen the light. The clontarf range uses a light stain which highlights the grain and these beautiful flaws.
The traditionalists out there will probably take a while to adopt this style but smokers with more open minds will simply love them.
So to clarify you are getting a stunning pipe made from the same high quality Briar which has had less time spent filling and finishing it so the come with a very reasonable price tag.
The pipes are finished with a stunning light stain and have been rusticated and stained black on the rim for a stunning contrast. The shanks are laser engraved with the Peterson logo, model name and number before the pipes is finished with an acrylic fishtail stem and stamped with the Gold Peterson P logo.
The Clontarf are not referred to as System pipes by Peterson but they incorporate the reservoir trap soi our opinion are system pipes which will smoke very cool and dry.Peterson System
Peterson System: A patented system, which naturally removes tar and moisture from the smoke without restricting the draw. Resulting in a very smooth and dry smoke. We have recommended Petersons to many wet smokers have have returned delighted with the difference.Fishtail mouthpiece:
Peterson’s trademark patented mouthpiece is the p.lip design, which has many advantages but unfortunately some smokers just don’t get on with it. The Donegal series comes with the fishtail mouthpiece as an alternative for those who don’t get on with the P.Lip.Variation:
Due to the costs involved we cannot picture the specific pipe that you will receive.
The pipe pictured is a sample from our stock. The size and shape will be the same but the grain and visible flaws will vary dramatically.
