Irish Estates: Peterson Kapruf (53) (P-Lip)
Product Number: 004-004-9494
Peterson's approach to shaping can best be described as taking classic English and French shapes and imbuing them with a touch more muscularity. Part of this aesthetic was born out of Peterson's patented System engineering requiring a larger shank, but the style has even made its way to non-System Peterson pipes. The "53" Lovat is a fitting example — a classic shape through-and-through, this piece is rendered in quite a compact form, while remaining substantial throughout the shank and transition and housing a respectable chamber. This particular example is from the firm's Kapruf series, one of Peterson's older, now discontinued lines that was the sandblasted counterpart to the smooth or rusticated Kapet series (the "ruf" in Kapruf denoting a textured sandblast).-Truett Smith
