A pipe shape not to be confused with any other maker, the 'Bell' shape as it is sometimes referred as, is something of an icon of Peterson shaping. The famous Sherlock Holmes series 'Original' is based on this Bell shape, and this 'XL315' is the largest version as well as a 'System' design. The system design is a superior drilling method which eliminates the build up of moisture in the draft hole. Furthermore, "System" pipes have push stem configurations allowing one to disassemble immediately after smoking without worry of disfiguring the shank. The Ebony finish is a solid high shine black dress finish, adding yet another perk to a list of quality attributes at one very modest price.
