Peterson Kapp-Royal Xl05 Smooth Estate Briar Pipe, Unsmoked [SOLD OUT]

Out of stock


Peterson pipes generally need no introduction, but just in case you’re unfamiliar: in 1876, a Latvian named Charles Peterson immigrated to Ireland and was hired making pipes in a workshop owned by Frederick and George Kapp. After rising through the ranks to become head craftsman, Peterson bought into the Kapp’s business, which was renamed, Kapp & Peterson (K&P). During this time, Peterson himself applied for several patents for pipe designs, including the world-famous Peterson’s System. Since then, Peterson has become one of the most recognizable names in pipe smoking and continues to produce high quality pipes from their headquarters in Dublin.

The Kapp-Royal has undergone a fair few changes since its debut many decades ago, with contemporary renditions, such as this one, being part of Peterson’s rare, high-grade output. As such, the series is not easy to get hold of, and when they do pop up, they are not cheap – though that doesn’t stop them selling out almost immediately. For the Kapp-Royal series, Peterson uses its best bowls, which are dressed in their Natural finish so as to make sure the superior grain patterns on these bowls are visible and appreciated. Added to the bowls are sterling silver military mounts, and amber-hued stems. I find this gives the contemporary Kapp-Royals something of an old-world aesthetic, which I enjoy very much.

Collectors rejoice! This Kapp-Royal is completely unsmoked, and comes with its original box and sleeve.
