Where to start?.
In relation to the many Classic entry level Peterson pipes,one of the most common questions asked of me by newcomers being introduced to the brand is, "which one should I buy"?
Now that is not an easy one to answer,bearing in mind that we are all different in our smoking tastes,preferences and coupled to how much we are willing to spend.
The series I often suggest to the novice smoker/collector is the Kenmare. It is excellent value for money and so far has never disappointed me in smoking qualities. It has a rich red finish complimented by the gold coloured P on the mouthpiece. This series is available in all classic shapes with Peterson Lip or Fishtail mouthpiece.
The one I have in my rotation is the 01 shape,I love it.The colour is an attractive warm rich red.I have found it to be a grand flake pipe,excellent smoker and very tactile.They have decent thick bowl walls that do not overheat. I prefer the fishtail stem for this series.The price is around a very reasonable $90.
