Originally designed for the German market, Peterson's Dublin Filter series features a range of iconic shapes, drilled with a 9mm airway — perfect for those who prefer to use filters. The smooth finished versions offer higher quality briar, with beautiful grain patterns. A bit larger in proportion to most Billiards in the line, this 106 shape is an excellent addition to the series, topped with a fishtail stem and smooth/polished finish.
Pipe Nook Notes
This is a 9mm Filtered pipe, which is my preferred method of pipe filtration and the one that I always recommend for the first-time pipe smoker, or to those who struggle with the issue of tongue-bite. It is designed to use 9mm charcoal filters, but if your preference is the Savinelli 9mm balsa filters, they will fit, with a bit of friendly nudging. However, Savinelli 9mm adapter inserts will not fit into the tenons of Peterson pipes. If filters aren't your thing, they can just as easily be smoked without a filter in place.
