Long and lean is the best way to describe the Peterson Churchwarden pipe line. The Churchwarden and Peterson pipes go together well, and like any Peterson pipe, they are made to the same high standards as any Peterson pipe. Try one today.
As a churchwarden smoker, I have been curious about Peterson's products for a while. Now that P&C carries a selection of them, I decided to take the plunge and bought one. It is quite aesthetically pleasing, with nary a straight line and a striking burl pattern to the briar. It is a most elegant pipe, even though it does have a small hole in the briar carefully patched. Form follows function, and this churchwarden smokes well indeed. I have smoked over a dozen tobaccos in it and I have found that it has the ability to remover almost any bite while leaving flavors alone. Whether it be a nippy Virginia, Vaper or assertive Latikia, the bite is greatly toned down and the flavors left behind. It smokes quite cooly throughout the bowl and tends not to gurgle unless I pull hard on it for a while. This is my preferred churchwarden for Virginias, and I also love smoking Orlik's Dark Strong Kentucky through it in particular.

What a pipe! Good size bowl smokes cool and it's light. Last pipe I smoke before bedtime. I guess I find it to be a very relaxing stress relieving pipe for me. I would recommend one to anyone!! W. G. Versailles Ky
