The button looks a bit thick and the weight is more than I personally would like, but the price looks good, I like the stain (at least in the pic) and it does have a nice stout shape.

No p-lip (which I hate) as far as I can see. Looks like a good deal on a nice, classic shape from a quality manufacturer. You'd better order it before I do Smile

I almost got that one or one other on there like it. Pete's are typically a great smoke. My Aran is one of the first I go to and in my regular rotation. If you like it, brother, get it!

I'm not really a straight pipe guy but that is a nice looking pipe for the money. Those Petes at SmokingPipes.com look more and more appealing everytime I look at them.

If you like it go for it. I have a bunch of commissioned pipes that I love but I still find myself adding Petes to my collection because I enjoy them so much.

Okay, so I did it.... so if anyone thinks it is a bad idea don't tell me now! affraid

I added some university flake and mixture flake along with a few softies to the order.... excited to see it. I'm a little nervous about the weight of the pipe but hopefully it won't be a big deal.

Thanks guys!

Weight: 2.20 oz./62.37 g. That is just right loaded with tobacco. IMHO

Can't go wrong with a Pete, good value for the money and in my experience always smoke well. Some recommend lightly sanding down the inside of the bowl on a new one as the taste can be quite foul until broken in.

Got the package today..... and yes, immediately fired it up with some university flake.

The pipe looks fantastic - really nice grain - and the bowl is large which I'm looking forward to since my others are rather medium in size.

I did forget, however, what it is like to smoke a brand new pipe. Since my last new pipe was 10 years ago I forgot all that comes with that fresh briar.
