And each year, Peterson releases a few special pipes for serious pipe collectors. One of the 2012 Limited Edition pipes is known as the Peterson Dracula Pipe.
Celebration of Dracula
The Peterson Dracula Pipe was released in celebration of Bram Stoker, the author of the famous novel Dracula. Its unique style and finish combine to create a quality pipe that looks as great as it smokes.
It's made from the standard Peterson briar stock that has given thousands of great smokes every year. With a smooth ebony finish and a nickel band that then transfers into the rich, red and black stem, it will look great on any shelf or in any pipe collection. The acrylic fishtail style stem features the gradual curve that gives it a touch of class.
