About The Shape

Peterson’s signature interpretation of the timeless Canadian design, this shape combines a traditional Billiard bowl with an elongated oval shank and an abbreviated, tapered stem. Long and lean, it’s an ideal choice for those who prefer trimmer, sleeker designs.

About The Range

Created with more experienced smokers and collectors in mind, the Peterson Premium Classic range elevates their Classic lines with the inclusion of bright, sterling silver fitments, shaped and applied by the hands of their most experienced silversmiths. Having undergone traditional five-to-eight-year apprenticeships under a senior craftsman, Peterson smiths are among the most talented in the world, each having engineered his own mandrel to the extent that each metal fitment is imprinted with the subtle, personal style of the one who machined it.

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.
