"As an example to others, and not that I care for moderation myself, it has always been my rule never to smoke when asleep and never to refrain when awake," so Mark Twain delightfully chortled in a speech at his 70th birthday. It is common knowledge that Mr. Twain ardently advocated the casual pleasure of smoking a pipe, and believed the practice could calm his mind, and thus give him a much desired introspection which was exceedingly useful for writing. And while on the subject of pipe smoking's psychologically beneficial properties, I implore you to read Twain's "The Moral Statistician", for one of the most brilliant, and lengthy, quotes on the subject ever recorded.
These particular offerings from Peterson are among their most beloved pipes, celebrated by pipe enthusiast for their exceptional smoking qualities. This newer edition - featuring both the Huck Finn cob-inspired straight Poker and Peterson's own modification for the original Mark Twain bent Billiard - are finished in a smooth glossy black-dress, with both sporting a handsome sterling silver mount; an ideal homage, as I'm sure Twain would agree, to mark the hundredth year since the passing of America's greatest humorist.
