Peterson: Deluxe Classic Natural (B11) P-Lip
Product Number: 002-029-64291
Though a part of Peterson's standard shape chart, the Irish marque's "B" designs fall a bit outside of convention, each piece being more eccentric compared to traditional pipe chart standards and often combining elements of various other classic shapes. In the case of the "B11," the Irish marque presents a flat-bottomed Brandy on the end of a sinuous, well-balanced S-curve. The strongly tapered bowl showcases Peterson's voluptuous shaping style and also ensures an easy, ergonomic feel in hand.
As the oldest continuously operating pipe factory in the world, Peterson often draws on its historic tradition to perfectly balance modern innovation with traditionalism, and the Deluxe Classic line embodies that approach, offering a series of pipes inspired by vintage aesthetics from historic Peterson catalogs. The Deluxe Classic range showcases extra-wide bands of sterling silver, and such a style is reminiscent of early-20th-century pipe design and indicative of Peterson's renowned metalwork, calling to mind patent-era Peterson pipes and creating a look that's classically Peterson in the same vein as many of their Pipe of the Year releases. Unlike those yearly editions, though, the Deluxe Classic series brings this retro motif to Peterson's regular-production lineup, limited only by the line's standards for briar quality. The luxurious silver accents combine beautifully with stummels selected specifically for their superior grain, with this example dressed in the smooth Natural finish — a stunning, honey-blonde stain highlighting vivid grain patterns. The Deluxe Classic series is one of Peterson's high-grade lines, composed entirely of non-System shapes but with many still featuring the patented P-Lip mouthpiece, lauded for distributing smoke evenly across the palate.-Truett Smith
