Standard System briar pipes are Peterson's bread and butter. Crafted with the company's innovative Standard System reservoir, each puff is ultra-dry and smooth. Thanks to this system, smoke first passes through a chamber before rising through the stem. When you combine this with the army style mouthpiece, you've got one of Peterson's most time tested pipes. Often imitated, but never duplicated, that's Peterson Standard System pipes. Each pipe also comes fitted with a nickel shank band.
