The “408” shape from Peterson pipes, here with P-Lip, falls in the neighborhood of a bent author with apple sensibilities. Note that the shank is wider than is traditional for this bowl shape. Add the classic Aran finish and this tobacco pipe becomes an enchanting blend of traditional and different that you’ll enjoy puffing on for years to come.

Pipe looks stunning, feels good in my hand. However it was not ready to use. The air flow was obstructed, and I couldn't get the stem off without putting it into the freezer first to shrink it. I had to sand the stem slightly to be able to remove it while the pipe is room temp. I then discovered that the coating on the inside of the pipe and mostly obstructed the airflow, and had to use a needle to open it back up. However it was worth the work, the pipe now smokes beautifully.
