The bent Apple sometimes teems to be a feminine shape, described as "shapely," "curvacious" and other decidedly softer terms. And while they could be used to describe this Peterson, but it just wouldn't be quite right. The XL02 is a decidedly manly pipe, with a fistful of bowl and a stout shank that meets the bowl in a muscular transition. The chamber is vast and ready for manly helping of tobacco.
