Default Peterson Plato

Flame grain covers 360 of the bowl and close to 315 of the shank. Measureing just over 3” from the heel to the apex of the platue rim, 2” across and 6 1/2” long. Weighing a full 3 ounces, the pipe feels surprising light for it’s size. All in all a perfectly balanced and beautiful freehand pipe from Peterson of Dublin.

The tobacco chamber was stained the same color as the exterior of the bowl, this caused an off flavor which required a few bowls of tobacco be smoked before the taste of the tobacco was true.

The draft hole is drilled to the right and low of center in the mortice, as a result the draft enters the bowl to the right and partly below the bottom of the bore. Dispite this the pipe provides a good dry smoke. The stem fits snugly and is removed without effort. The aluminum reducer that is threaded into the mouth piece, coupled with the poor drilling prevent a pipe cleaner from passing into the bowl. The pipe has great hand feel and the thick walls prevent it getting to hot to hold.

Astheticly this pipe gets 10 of 10, the enginering is spot on, but the drilling is shocking for a pipe of this grade from Peterson’s.

I decided to keep this pipe dispite it’s flaws, but it will be the last Peterson's pipe I order online.

Nice looking grain pattern on your pipe. I'm just wondering if this is an aberration in regards to the drilling on this particular pipe?

Again, nice looking pipe D...

Strange they felt it necessary to stain the inside of the bowl as well

peterson's dip stains their pipes, explains the stain in the bowl. little bit of 400 grit sandpaper takes care of that quickly.
