The Peterson System Standard "314" has a lot to offer, both in appearance and practicality. The "314" is of medium size and robust build, yet light when hung from the jaw. Its stylish rounded bowl and short shank make it compact, thus giving the pipe a stout, but muscular presence. As part of Peterson's System line, the "314" also was designed to deliver an especially dry, cool smoke by reducing moisture, capturing it in a small reservoir at the base of the shank. If you've never had the opportunity to try a System pipe, I would highly recommend it.
