Peterson 2017 Pipe of the Year Sandblasted Estate Briar Pipe [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.

Each year, Peterson releases a limited-edition Pipe of the Year. Sometimes these pipes are special versions of standard Peterson shapes, but other times, they’re re-releases of shapes that haven’t been in production for years, or even decades. For the 2017 PotY, Peterson went with the latter option, offering the opportunity for smokers to get their hands on a Peterson shape that was first sold by Peterson in 1906, but as far as I’ve been able to discern, it disappeared entirely not long after. In 2017, it finally returned, only to disappear again afterwards.

It’s a shame this shape is so rare. It’s a curious little thing – a belge of sorts, with a canted, egg-shaped bowl, a short round shank, and, in this instance, a saddle stem.

The condition is excellent. The sandblast finish remains crisp, the acrylic stem is free from chatter, and the rim has only a hair of darkening on the inner, beveled lip.
