Peterson The Squire Large Pipes
The Peterson Pipe Company has one of the best reputations for quality in the pipe industry, and their most successful line of pipes has become one of the most popular in the pipe community. The Sherlock Holmes Collection was first issued in 1987 as a 7 day set complete with a collector's stand to hold these 7 pipes. After its huge success, a second line was introduced and all of the pipes in the collection began to be offered individually as well.

Among these, the Squire is one of the more popular options. It's a bulldog style shape with a large quarter bend that gives it that classic 'Holmes' look and feel. It also features a tapered fishtail mouthpiece and a sterling silver band with the SH insignia stamped on it. The bowl itself is 1 1/2 inches deep and 3/4 inches in diameter to give you ample room for a long smoking experience. The pipe itself is 5 1/2 inches in length and can be cupped comfortably in the hand. In fact, most agree that it's almost a natural fit.
Like other pipes in the Sherlock Holmes line, The Squire is available in several different finish options ranging from Rustic to Natural Gold, each one displaying a different side of your personality. The high quality briarwood combined with the right finish can deliver a striking appearance that will always amaze.
