This special pipe has now sold to one lucky pipe collector. As usual we have left the listing on our website for historical reference and interest.
Highly Collectable One Off Piece We have many collectors frequenting our doors looking for "the special one!" Well they don't come much more special than this. The Black Swan Shoppe had this pipe commissioned as a show piece. Silver caps are rare enough but an 18k Gold cap is as rare as rocking horse poo so that's what we asked for. Usually when adding Gold to a pipe it is often paired with a Natural Briar as this is the most expensive but we like to think outside the box. We though't Gold mountings would look stunning against Petersons trademark standard Rusticated Briar with it's deep red stain and by jove we were right!! The finished article was even better than we imagined.
Special Comission: When commissioning this pipe we considered freehands and something totally outrageous but after much deliberation we decided it would be nice if the final owner of this piece actually smoked it, enjoyed it and made friends with it. So we went for a standard 317. A proper large fireside pipe with a long flowing p.lip stem for a beautiful cool smoke. The dimensions carry off the extravagance of the Gold in a way that just wouldn't work on a small pipe and what more can we say, simply stunning.
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 smoker. We have recommended Petersons to many wet smokers have have returned delighted with the difference.
P.Lip mouthpiece: 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.
