One of Peterson's staple shapes, the bent Billiard of the System design is one of the best smoking pipes money can buy. Broad chambered with an ample amount of briar in the bowl walls, the shape melds into the hand with ease. The System design is the secret to this pipe's success, as it produces a smoke that's dry, cool, and, most importantly, free of gurgling. Finished in an Ebony dress, the glossy surface is smooth and flawless; quite an accomplishment when considering the modest price. I guess that's why Peterson is among the best in the business.
