Peterson pipes, made in Ireland, provide the pipe smoker with a wide selection of briar. These pipes are wonderful to collect. Most models are available with either a standard, traditional stem (called a "fishtail") or the famous Peterson "p-lip", which directs the smoke toward the roof of your mouth to reduce the chance of burning your tongue. With the quality of the craftsmanship on these pipes, it's no secret why they're one of the top-selling brands in the industry. If you're anything like me you have your eyes on a few different Peterson pipes you just haven't felt the time was right to strike yet.
