What manner of beast is this? The thick stummel starts off as a bent Billiard but the bowl is capped like a short Bulldog/Rhodesian with double bead lines and a smart bevel leading up to the rim. Well, it's quite elementary when you recall that Peterson's Kinsale series is intended to provide economical renditions of the famed Sherlock Holmes collections. Furthermore, recall that the "XL12" is based on the "Baskerville," which is named for the English manor that was plagued by a mysterious hound. Moreover, one can easily deduce that this wonderful pipe is quite the steal priced at under $70.
