My first Peter Heeschen pipe was a 'Sail', a form that, along with the "P" was considered one his two signature shapes back in 2001. Having his first signature, how could I not acquire the first? While the Sail is something that I haven't seen in eons, the "P" continues stronger than ever
I am an unabashed fan of the bent "P", it is incredibly comfortable in the hand, looks different than anything else out there, and always reminds me of one of the coolest pipemakers whom I have ever met; "Uncle Peter" Heeschen. Peter Heeschen is renowned for a shaping aesthetic that is generous, rounded, almost Baroque. The bowl of this 'A' grade beauty is voluptuous, even when weighed against Peter's standards.
