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. All in all, this is an example of how Peterson has, for generations, made even the most traditional forms "all their own". It is presented here in the Christmas 2013 edition, featuring seasonal, yet handsomely understated colors in the form of Peterson's rich walnut finish paired to festive red and green accents sandwiched between bright nickle rings.
