Peterson Irish Made Army 69 - Fishtail / SOLD
A smallish bent billiard perfect pocket pipe, beautifully grained briar in a walnut stain, semi matt finish with nickel band and fishtail mouthpiece.
The Army mount first came from soldiers during World War I who used spent shell casings to repair broken pipes. Pull it apart hot, carry it wherever you go, that’s what the Army mount is perfect for.
Friedrich and Heinrich Kapp, German immigrants to Ireland from Nuremberg, founded the famed Kapp Brothers store on Grafton Street, Dublin in 1865. Shortly thereafter, a Latvian immigrant, Charles Peterson, strolled into the Kapp workshop and declared that he could make better pipes than they could. Armed with an imaginative flair for pipes and a craftsman's background, Peterson not only proved himself correct, but became the third partner in the fledgling firm.
