Peterson: Sherlock Holmes Rusticated Squire P-Lip Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-72618
In commemoration of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's esteemed short fiction, Peterson's "Squire" design pays homage to The Adventure of the Reigate Squire, a piece from the "Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes" collection, in which the energetic Holmes forgoes recovering from the strain of his last caper to take up an unusual burglary case in the quiet Surrey countryside. Also referred to as the "XL15," this full-bodied, broad chambered bent Bulldog epitomizes the marque's robust, muscular approach to shaping with its thick, diamond shank and stout bowl.
Peterson introduced the Sherlock Holmes series in 1987 with a one-off design commemorating the 100th anniversary of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's A Study in Scarlet. Two years later, the Irish marque decided to add a new shape every six months, forming what would eventually become the 18-pipe Sherlock Holmes collection. Each pipe in the collection also showcases Peterson's exemplary silverwork — the firm being renowned for its application of sterling silver, with the Sallynoggin factory's smiths having completed a years-long mentorship stewarded by Peterson's senior craftsmen. The Sherlock Holmes line boasts broad accent bands of the regal metal, etched with the collection's logo, contrasted here against a craggy, dark chocolate-stained rustication.-Jeffery Sitts
