Peterson Shape Chart

For more than 150 years, Peterson of Dublin has enjoyed an enviable reputation for serving pipesmokers worldwide by manufacturing fine smoking instruments in a multitude of shapes to suit the most particular and exacting of enthusiasts. It's perhaps most famous for its System pipes, which provide a reservoir to catch moisture during the smoking process and also inform the style of its non-system pipes with bold and tubular aesthetics recognizable anywhere.

But those design attributes are not all that commend Peterson; their shape chart is far more extensive. Smaller Peterson shapes exist, and the overall selection may be more expansive than some realize. We at Smokingpipes are pleased to present the current Peterson shape chart with the hope that our clients will find it interesting and educational. For a better understanding of the scope of Peterson's shaping, see it all in context with this informative shape chart.

    • Thomas, something's not right, here. How can the system work in a straight pipe?
