Peterson Plato Freehands:
Not a shape code in sight! Peterson’s core range of pipes are easily identifiable by their codes and you can usually get any finish and style in the shape and size you wish.
Each Plato is totally unique and you will never see one alike. Only a handful of carvers in the world are good enough to be given the reigns to go freehand by Peterson as it takes considerable skill and vision. The Briar blocks are cut from the outer layer of the burl (exterior) of the Briar roo, known as Plateaux. This is the finest area of the Briar root and produces the most striking grain pattern and highest quality Briar. Many freehands will leave the Burl on the rim of the bowl which adds unrivaled character and is testament to the fact the pipe has been carved from the premium section of the root.
Most freehands are larger pipes with thick walls, this combined with the natural properties of the Briar taken from this are of the root make them very heat resilient pipes.
Peterson Plato Kildare:
The Peterson Plato pipes come in various finishes. The Kildare is finished with a Rich, Reddish Brown stain which results in a characterful finish that enhances the striking flame grain of the Plateaux Briar without losing the natural character of the beautiful material.
Due to the lack or raw material and lack of carvers capable of making them you will not see many of these on the market. We order our stocks 2 years in advance in hope that they arrive before we run out. If you fall in love with one of these models we recommend securing one as soon as possible as they are carved according to the mood and vision of the carver depending on what block they are presented with so we cannot request specific shapes.
Unique mouthpiece designed to greatly enhance the smokers experience. The lip is shaped to fit the mouth more comfortably with the tongue pressed under the lip. The smoke exits above the lip, which significantly reduces tongue bite from even the most bitter smoking tobacco’s.
