Just like a big kid I enjoy having new best friends.This also has parallels with pipes for me.As seen in my previous 'Notes From The Pete Bog',one of my current favourite Peterson Pipe shapes is the magnificent chunky B10 Dublin.
Recently I was fortunate enough to be given the opportunity to purchase a beautiful B10 Rosslare Royal Irish.
Having made my choice of pipe I was amazed that it arrived within only a couple of days,brilliant service.
Typically the pipes always look much better in the 'flesh' so to speak.This one was a complete surprise to me in that I have not been a great fan of the recent so called Peterson natural finishes,however I was very pleasantly surprised ,the bowl is beautifully finished in a nice toned down stain,just the way I like them.
Quality of finish is what you would expect from this top of the range Royal Irish,outstanding and very handsome.Please judge for yourselves.
