Sherlock Holmes Smooth Watson P-Lip
About The Shape
Originally released as part of our Original Sherlock Holmes collection (1989-1991), this fully bent Rhodesian was designed by our senior craftsman Paddy Larrigan from a sketch made by our dear friend Mario Lubinski. A hybridised shape, it combines elements of the Oom Paul and Calabash and serves as a partner to the extra large, trumpeting Calabash of the Original, designed by Paddy in 1987.
About The Series
The Sherlock Holmes Dark Smooth line presents all our fabled, Sherlock-inspired shapes in a vivid, smouldering red stain and a semi-gloss finish, accented by broad sterling silver bands and traditional, jet-black stems.
About The Range
In 1987, we released a special commemorative pipe to celebrate the 100th anniversary of A Study in Scarlet, Sir Arthur Conan Doyles' first novel in the Sherlock Holmes universe, originally published in the November 1887 issue of Beeton's Christmas Annual. The pipe was a tubular, almost trumpeting Calabash shape: an XL version of the 305(b) System first designed by our senior craftsman, Paddy Larrigan. That design is better known today as the Original.

Before his retirement, our dear Larrigan went on to create the prototypes for each of the seven shapes in the Original Sherlock Holmes Collection, released between 1989 and 1991, all of which were inspired by people, places, or important artifacts from Doyle's stories. Continuing with that theme, we followed those first Sherlock Holmes designs with The Return of Sherlock Holmes line (1992-1997), ushering in an additional seven original shapes, as well as The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes series (2011), in which we added an additional four signature models.

Collectively, these pieces would comprise one of our most popular and sought-after series, one we still produce today in a variety of finishes, all banded with sterling silver and stamped with the series' logo, itself inspired by a silhouette of Basil Rathbone with a 4AB System (Large Dutch Billiard) clenched between his teeth.
