The Sherlock Holmes series from Peterson is one of the, if not the, most popular lines of collectors' pipes from the Dublin-based pipemaker, and maybe all of pipedom. The series in known for stepping away from the traditional shape chart and playing with the limits of definitions. Of course, saying all that, the Professor is one of the more clear cut shapes. The large bent Billiard is easily identified, although not like other modern Peterson shapes. Whether for the collecting or the vast, deep chamber and the long, comfortable smoke it promises, The Professor is a pipe you will appreciate.
