As many of you may know from another thread, I just got. Ys lo that Peterson Sherlock Holmes Handsome. I compromised a bit for the fishtail stem. Instead of ebony I settled with the dark red wood, up in the end I like it better! Also found it for 80 bucks less.

Damn that US markup

Cool

I do love that shape- like a deep bent bulldog, which is my favorite standard shape.

Never had a Pete, can’t wait!

Looks great! Classic Pete design and an interesting take on the bulldog.

Super looking Pete you got yourself! I've only got one myself and it's a fishtail too. Hope yours smokes as nicely as mine does.

I havent broken it in because I have not had time for a casual smoke today. No doubt it will hapen later on this weeek. One thing is that it is a bit smaller than I imagined. No doubt because of the superb tricky dick photography.

So how was the pipe? If it smokes half as good as it looks then it must have been fantastic!
