Irish Estate Peterson: Premier System Sandblasted (317) P-Lip Unsmoked Pipe.. Condition is “Used”. Shipped with USPS First Class.
Alongside the “314,” Peterson’s “317” bent Billiard presents one of the Irish marque’s most compact pipes within their System lineup. The proportions of the shank and transition still showcase Peterson’s penchant for robust muscularity, but the overall size remains conveniently smaller compared to their other bent Billiard renditions, making the “317” an ideal choice for those interested in Peterson’s signature shaping style and patented System engineering, but who prefer briars of more pocket-friendly sensibilities.
Peterson’s System pipe is one of the Irish marque’s most celebrated and historic innovations, boasting patents dating back to 1890. The System is comprised of three aspects: an army mount, internal condensation reservoir, and the graduated bore P-Lip mouthpiece (though Peterson does offer fishtail versions to accommodate smokers’ preferences). Being the only externally visible of the three components, the military mount allows the pipe to be broken down even while hot, reinforcing the shank. The other two parts, the internal reservoir and graduated bore, are found within the pipe itself — both working in tandem to remove moisture from the smoke. Such a construction requires a slightly different process when cleaning a System pipe, and results in a more flavorful, drier smoke. A step up from the System Standard line, the Premier trades the former’s nickel mount for one of sterling silver — Peterson’s silverwork being a significant source of pride and renown for the Sallynoggin factory. Featuring select-grade briar, the Premier System is presented here in a walnut-stained sandblast for a concise show of textured grain. The System series is a testament to Peterson’s influence on the pipe industry at large, and its continued popularity over the past 100-plus years bespeaks the company’s reputation for quality.
