Irish Estates: Peterson Kapruf Sandblasted (338) (P-Lip) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-004-9836
Peterson's iconic shaping style is often described as "tubular" and muscular, and the Irish marque's "338" bent Billiard does well to exemplify this convention — being the same design as the "313" but outside of the System series. The bowl rises tall and upright, posing a cylindrical, tube-like disposition, while the shank and transition retain the aforementioned hearty and robust proportions. That said, the overall length remains quite compact, and the sinuous bend provides a comfortable clenching posture — the gesture of the stem and curling heel calling to mind the profile of the iconic "05" shape but without the bowl's flare at the rim. 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
