Peterson: Army Filter Heritage (304) Fishtail (9mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-75663
The "304" shares both style and history with the "306": Both designs were introduced to Peterson's shape chart in 1992 and were the first new System pipes since the "301," "302," and "303" were featured in the 1978 catalog. The "304" and "306" also boast flattened heels, allowing them to sit upright while still offering the comfortable posture of a bent pipe. While most Peterson shapes change numbers when featured outside the System line, these two flat-bottomed forms remain constant across series. Presented here is the "304," being a touch smaller than the "306," catering to pipe smokers' personal preferences.
Peterson has offered filtered pipes since 1947, the Irish marque's signature style of robust shanks and transitions allowing for a seamless crossover between their filtered and non-filtered renditions of the same shape. Since 1997, the Dublin Filter line has championed Peterson's filtered pipe selection, and in 2021, that selection expanded with the introduction of the Army Filter series. Combining the timeless aesthetic and convenience of Peterson's Irish Made Army series with 9mm drilling, Army Filter pipes enjoy the rare combination of accommodating a filter and also featuring an army mount, allowing the pipe to be disassembled while smoking without warping the mortise. Peterson's proprietary charcoal filters are offered in packs of 150- and 40-count boxes, and each Army Filter pipe features a hand-shaped, nickel mount, adding handsome contrast against the smooth, walnut stain of this example's Heritage finish.-Truett Smith
