'Red Darwin'

'Red' Darwin

As most of you regular Blog followers know, I have a particular fascination for the new Darwin series.Peterson lists only four Darwin variants on their official web site,Deluxe,Premier,Rustic and Smooth.However I have managed to source several more variants in an attempt to make up a seven pipe rotation/set.These are a Sandblast,Ebony and finally a 'Red'.The 'Red' arrived today to complete the set.It is a premier quality briar with a silver ferrule. Here is a photo of it and one of the complete set,apologies for using a Sherlock Holmes rack .



  1. Another beauty you have there, Jim. Your ablility to keep finding these wonderful Pete's is amazing!

  2. I guess I'm going to have to get off my duff (no, not Howard) and get me one of these Darwins just to see what all the hooplah is about.
    All joking aside Jim, that is an impressive set.

  3. Very nice looking set of pipes Jim.

  4. Jim,

    An altogether impressive, and I'm sure unique, seven-day set. I really admire the vision that it took to put together such an enviable collection. I particularly like your new red premier. Very well done.

  5. Thank you all for your helpful and constructive comments,they are much appreciated.
