Description

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.

With a pipe as classic looking at this one, it’s always an interesting surprise to be reminded of how thoroughly modern it is. The shape “B10,” with its resemblance to the historical calabash, was created around the turn of the millennium, and was, according to Peterson, a blend of the traditional calabash, Rhodesian, and bent Dublin shapes. The Cara series, while also looking both classical and classy, debuted in 2005, as a new series of “dress” pipes. But, in both instances, Peterson’s objective was one of invoking the past, of shapes and finishes that defined previous eras of pipe smoking. I’d say, therefore, that the B10 is an ideal shape for the Cara series. This one is rendered in the Cara Sandblasted finish.

The condition is great. There’s some minor, inner rim darkening and finish fading on that rim, but it’s not especially noticeable given the pipe’s guiding aesthetic. It certainly won’t stop the pipe from smoking well.
