Peterson: Pipe of the Year 2019 Smooth P-Lip
Product Number: 002-029-44057
The "999" Rhodesian from Peterson is one of the most sought-after numbers from the Irish marque. An eager Rhodesian, the shape is imbued with a touch of characteristic muscularity, though overall, it's fairly slender and svelte, especially considering their more overtly hearty fare. Few know, however, that the shape was preceded by an even bolder number, named the "John Bull" after the jovial, stout personification of the United Kingdom. The shape was thought lost for decades, but after an unfinished bowl turned up at the Dublin factory, the marque opted to honor it by way of their 2019 Pipe of the Year. Seen here in a dark rustication paired to a generous sterling silver accent band, it's an excellent means of experiencing a bit of the maker's history, and making it part of your own.- Kaz Walters
