The difference between an Oom Paul and bent Billiard might come down to splitting hairs, or degrees of bent shanks. And the Peterson "304" really skirts the edges of that debate. Nevertheless, the compact length, deep bowl and flattened bottom for sitting make this a really great pipe to add to your rotation. Add in the slick Ebony finish and Peterson's moisture reducing System, and this becomes a really great pipe to have in your collection.
