Bold, masculine, and robust are words too often used to deduce just what makes a Billiard so classic. We think of it as the archetypal pipe, the astute intellectual's pipe, beloved by historical icons ranging from Sherlock Holmes to Albert Einstein. The truth is, the Billiard, which Peterson is so darn good at producing, is a very acclimating pipe. It's able to reinforce any individual's personal style while mixing in a bit of wit and sophistication. This particular Billiard, with its hardy rusticated exterior, eye-catching sterling silver band, and popular fish-tail stem, carries on the tradition.
