PLEASE NOTE: THE PIPE IS AN IRISH SECOND & THE IMAGE DISPLAYED IS NOT

If you've ever been to any kind of "outlet" store, you're already more or less familiar with what seconds are. Products that — due to some minor cosmetic flaw — just don't pass a manufacturer's quality control process. When these cosmetic flaws don't affect the function or durability, they generally get sold at a deep discount. Not ideal for the manufacturer, but it's great news for you, the customer.

And that's exactly what we have here — pipes produced right here in Ireland, fully functional, eminently smoke able, and heavily discounted due to some superficial blemish. Irish Seconds are graded from 1 to 3, with 1 being the highest quality, and 3 being the deepest discount. If you're in the market for a shop pipe, just getting into pipes, or are generally more budget minded, these are hard to go past.

About The Shape

Originally released as one of four Specialty shapes in 1945, the Tankard is our variation on the classic Poker design, featuring a tall, cylindrical bowl, a high-set transition, and a sleeker shank for a timeless, elegant appeal.

About The Series

Since 1998, we've released an annual special edition St. Patrick's Day line, presenting a number of our most popular shapes in a festive, distinctly Irish finish unique to the year. Our 2020 edition celebrates that tradition with the first green sandblasted pipe in the limited edition series, featuring rich emerald stains, extra craggy finishes, and bright metal army mounts.

About The Range

In addition to our regular production ranges, we also offer a number of limited-edition series unique to each year. These lines celebrate our rich history and tradition of craftsmanship, often looking to the past in order to innovate for tomorrow. From our annual Saint Patrick's Day and Christmas Pipe series to our singular Pipe of the Year models, these pieces are crafted for true Peterson collectors and enthusiasts.
