The "106" is a classic straight Billiard, that is to say a classically Peterson straight Billiard. The bowl, of course, shows every sign of their careful attention to perfect shaping, while the shank is proportionally both somewhat longer and considerably thicker than what would be considered the norm from other pipe makers. Peterson's silverwork has long, and quite rightly, been celebrated. The pairing of the silver rim and silver band at the end of the shank is a superb example of the skill with which Peterson works in the metal.
