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

This bent Billiard shape incorporates all the major design cues of our signature House Style, complete with a proportionally muscular shank and transition, but in a much smaller, compact package. A versatile pocket pipe to suit any taste.

About The Series

Our flagship line, the System Standard stamp first appeared in 1945, but the entry-level design has been a staple in our catalogues since Charles Peterson secured his final patent in 1898. Designed to provide a cooler, drier smoke, each pipe features a deep reservoir within the shank to collect excess moisture; a graduated bore mouthpiece that funnels the smoke and allows moisture to collect within the reservoir; a sturdy nickel military mount, which allows the pipe to be broken down and cleaned without damage or warping; and our patented P-Lip bit, which draws the smoke upward, thus reducing tongue bite. While the P-Lip bit is the traditional choice, we also offer System Standard pipes with fishtail stems. Available here in the traditional walnut stain of the 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 ground-breaking 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.
