Peterson Army Filter XL02 Smooth Heritage Fishtail (9mm Filtered)
Combining the classic aesthetic of the popular Irish Made Army line with the utility of a 9mm filter arrangement, Peterson's Army Filter series is the perfect choice for those who want to experience the history and tradition of Peterson pipes but prefer to enjoy their pipes with 9mm filters. Available in smooth and sandblasted finishes with Acrylic stems, each pipe features a broad, hand-shaped nickel army mount, allowing the pipe to be disassembled for cleaning even while still hot, without risking cracks or damage to the mortise. Classic and refined, this smooth-finished model showcases Peterson's warm and timeless Heritage stain in the robust XL02 Bent Apple design.
Pipe Nook Notes
This is a 9mm Filtered pipe, which is my preferred method of pipe filtration and the one that I always recommend for the first-time pipe smoker, or to those who struggle with the issue of tongue-bite. It is designed to use 9mm charcoal filters, but if your preference is the Savinelli 9mm balsa filters, they will fit, with a bit of friendly nudging. However, Savinelli 9mm adapter inserts will not fit into the tenons of Peterson pipes. If filters aren't your thing, they can just as easily be smoked without a filter in place.
