Ever wished that you could go “Elementary my dear Watson” as you hold a top of the line smoking pipe like the one everyone’s favorite private eye did. A Peterson pipe fits the bill. Originally the brainchild of its creator Charles Peterson, the Peterson pipe became a smoking phenomenon when the craftsman teamed up with professional pipe makers, the Kapp brothers in Dublin in the 1800s. The brand has since been popular with many pipe smokers around the world.
However what truly sets a Peterson pipe apart from its counterparts is its unique one of a kind pipe dry system which is designed to guarantee a dry smoke. Besides that, moisture is also prevented from escaping into the mouth through the stem itself since it is designed to open at a rapid pace and close near the bit.
Some people have had trouble cleaning up their Peterson pipes’ P-Lip system. However, a pipe cleaner that is dipped in alcohol will be best for getting rid of any residue (dried tobacco) in the mouthpiece or shank of the pipe.
Some of the better known and unique members of the Peterson Pipe family include the following –
Yes you guessed it. This series of Peterson pipes was designed specifically while keeping the famous Scotland Yard detective in mind.

The Rosslare Royal Irish range of Peterson Pipes was first introduced in 2003 and has proven to be immensely successful since then. Pipes in this range come in a deep brown finish which shows the grain of the bowls at their best. The color is further complemented by amber colored mouthpieces.
