Peterson Pipes / System / Premier System Smooth
Premier System Smooth (303) P-Lip (9mm)
About The Shape
Our signature take on the classic bent Apple design, and one of our most popular shapes, this timeless jaw-hanger combines a stout shank and robust transition with a deep bend for a tight-knit, muscular aesthetic that demonstrates our iconic House Style.
About The Series
While the Premier System stamp was formally announced in our 1945 catalogue, the design itself dates to our original System grading system, where it was known simply as the Second Grade, a higher-tiered System pipe meant to bridge the gap between our entry-level System and Deluxe models. Complete with a deep reservoir to collect excess moisture from the smoke; a graduated bore mouthpiece that funnels the smoke and allows moisture to collect within the reservoir; a sturdy sterling silver military mount, which allows the pipe to be broken down and cleaned without damage or warping; and a our patented P-Lip bit, which draws the smoke upward, thus reducing tongue bite, the Premier System pipe incorporates all of Charles Peterson's patented System engineering, elevated through the use of select-quality bowls and fitments of semi-precious metals. Perfect for the Peterson enthusiast looking to upgrade their collection of System pipes. Seen here in the classic Smooth finish.
About The Range
In 1890, after 15 years of handling and repairing pipes while working for the Kapps, Charles Peterson secured a patent in his own name, titled "A certain new and useful improvement in Tobacco-Pipes," which introduced a unique system comprised of a higher draft hole and a moisture reservoir bored into the shank and transition of a briar pipe. Over the next eight years, Charles continued to refine his System, applying for and securing patents for a graduated bore mouthpiece (1891), and a unique button design known today as the P-Lip (1894-1898). Designed to wick moisture away from the smoke, reduce tongue bite, and increase the longevity of the pipe, Peterson's complete System patent sparked a tradition of innovation, one we continue to uphold to this day. The System Pipe is the invisible source behind our unique House Style: our pipes' muscular shanks and transitions, tubular profile, and generous bends. Our overall shaping style has a distinctly antique form because it has remained largely unchanged for over 120 years.

In our System range, you'll find a variety of shapes in myriad finishes, each featuring Charles Peterson's groundbreaking improvements in the realm of tobacco pipes. Whether you're looking for your first pipe or to enhance a robust collection, here you'll find numerous options to suit any taste, all backed by our legacy of craftsmanship.
