Victory Pipes is thrilled to be one of a select number of stores offering these pipes; in fact, we are the only store in Ontario that was able to secure an order. They are in such limited supply that we only obtained one of each shape, so don’t delay when considering your purchase. These Peterson Hallowe’en pipes are Boo-tiful!
About The Series
Combining Charles Peterson’s patented System engineering with the dark, mysterious palette championed by their best-selling Dracula line, Peterson Halloween 2021 pipes encompass a range of iconic System shapes in dark sandblasted finishes, topped by bright nickel army mounts and swirled, red-and-black acrylic stems. Each pipe comes in a branded Peterson of Dublin box; inside the box is the pipe, a green felt drawstring pipe bag and a custom red-leather pipe stand.
About The Shape
Though quite compact in terms of overall length, this bent Billiard shape maintains the signature muscularity and tubular profile that define the Peterson House Style, the bowl being more cylindrical in shape with a stout, angular transition. Its half bend provides a natural clenching posture for a comfortable, hands-free smoke.
About The Range
In addition to their regular production ranges, Peterson also offer a number of limited-edition series unique to each year. These lines celebrate their rich history and tradition of craftsmanship, often looking to the past in order to innovate for tomorrow. From their annual Saint Patrick’s Day and Christmas Pipe series to the singular Pipe of the Year models, these pieces are crafted for true Peterson collectors and enthusiasts.
About Peterson of Dublin
In 1874, just one year after receiving a prize medal for his efforts at the 1873 London International Exhibition, German émigré Frederick Kapp moved his pipe retail operation from London to Dublin, Ireland, where he opened a new tobacco and pipe shop, making and selling pipes crafted from meerschaum as well as briar root, a relatively new material to the market. Within a year, Frederick employed a young Latvian woodworker named Charles Peterson to help with production and repairs.
In 1890, after 15 years of handling and repairing multitudes of pipes, and thinking critically about how to improve their design, Peterson applied for and secured a patent in his own name, titled “A certain new and useful improvement in Tobacco-Pipes,” introducing a unique system designed to wick moisture away from the smoke and deliver a fuller tobacco flavor – a design he would continue to improve over the next eight years. By 1896, after winning two gold medals at the International Tobacco Trades Exhibition in London for “Best Finished Pipe” and “Best Patent Pipe,” Charles Peterson, together with Frederick’s son Alfred Henry, had transformed the small pipe shop and smoking parlour into a budding international export factory, introducing the patented System pipe, as well as a host of other Classic designs, to the hands and minds of enthusiasts worldwide, where Kapp & Peterson has remained for generations.
As the oldest continuously operating briar pipe factory in the world, the pipe makers at Peterson have a certain tradition to uphold, a legacy of craftsmanship dating back over 150 years. Whether you’re browsing for your very first pipe or are a seasoned collector in search of a rare gem, know that every pipe in their catalogue carries with it that same preservation of tradition. A Peterson pipe isn’t just a utilitarian tool; it’s a piece of history you can carry with you in your travels, a faithful companion to accompany you through all that life offers.
