I like Petersons too, but my experience buying Petersons without first examining them in hand has about a 33% success ratio.
I appreciate the elucidation on Petersons. I have purchased 5 Petersons online, and sold or traded three. One more is on its way out. The only solid one is A System Standard that's older. I'm at the point where I simply won't buy a Pete again unless it's sold me personally by someone I trust, which pretty much means PSD.

Yeah, I've mentioned that pipe-maker for the last time on this forum. From now on it's Radices and those made by our artisan pipe-maker forum members only. @millarddj -looking forward to receiving and fixing your pipe when it arrives, and thank heavens it wasn't made by P*******

Oh, and today's mail included a pipe made by a fantastic artisan, but not a forum member yet (he said he's going to join), a clay pipe that is harmless enough and I don't think is on anyone's black list (made by Lepeltier), and a .... nevermind.

It's all in good fun.

I have a number of Petersons I like just fine.

And without the monthly Peterson-bashing, what would we discuss around here ? :D

All from the same place?
Oh no....Today was Watch City and The Country Squire and yesterday was Peretti and the Boswell I got with my pipe...just been too lazy to post them right when I get them...but these are my latest purchases.
Should have the other Boswell pipe tomorrow and a couple ounces with it.
To edit: That was actually two separate W.C. orders for those keeping score..been in work mode in the shop and not taking a lot of pics.
The good news is I can finally see my entire desktop :thumb-yello:

Wasn't trying to pile on. FWIW I rarely have time to read back through the thread. Pretty much just saw Dave's comment because it was where my notifications took me and responded.

No...after much deliberation I ordered my first “Christmas Pipe” and am awaiting it’s arrival...and hopefully I can make it at least till Thanksgiving.....self denial when half heartedly applied kind of thing...
I will say the tobacco smells, well, so good you really think you could eat it!
Got some Christmas coffee coming from Mystic Monks and with all these things and a healthy beard and belly I should feel downright Christmasy. :sailor:
