The Lestrade shape is the fourth pipe issued in the ‘Return of Sherlock Holmes’ seven day set and is certainly one of the most sought after. Closely related to Peterson’s ‘XL23’ in the shape chart, this full bent Apple has a real jaw-hanger balance, and is a shape that is also a superb fit in hand. The rotundity of the Apple shaped bowl is just a pleasure to hold, and even more so because of the smooth finish.
Sterling Silver Mounted Top quality briar with a hallmarked silver band.
The most successful series of pipes introduced by Peterson. First produced in 1987 to honour the most famous character in fiction Sherlock Holmes. All have extra large bowls a hallmarked Sterling Silver Band and the Peterson Lip.
Peterson Filter pipes are strictly speaking not system pipes but by adding space for a 9mm filter if you were to smoke the pipe without a filter there is a large chamber which is effectively a moisture trap. The bore hole does not have the same exaggerated graduation but it is still there to a degree meaning it will smoke better than the average non system pipe. So smoked with or without the absorbent 9mm filter in place there are very few pipes that will smoke cooler or sweeter.
A patented system, which naturally removes tar and moisture from the smoke without restricting the draw. Resulting in a very smooth and dry smoker. We have recommended Petersons to many wet smokers have have returned delighted with the difference.
P.Lip mouthpiece: Unique mouthpiece designed to greatly enhance the smokers experience. The lip is shaped to fit the mouth more comfortably with the tongue pressed under the lip. The smoke exits above the lip, which significantly reduces tongue bite from even the most bitter smoking tobacco.
