As more Peterson collectors begin to talk to each other worldwide, new information about the marque, its history, shapes, lines and series, will emerge. When there is no conflict with material being presented in the forthcoming book, I will revise any comments made in the blog, simply adding a “(Revised)” after the the title. This page will give the bona fide Pete Nut a quick overview of revised blogs and a synopsis of the new material.

RESTORING AN OLD PETERSON SANDBLAST SYSTEM (23 May 2015)–Thanks to Jorgen Jensen, who revised the dates this shape was available, in corroboration with the factory manager, Tony Whelan, Jr.

PETERSON CHUBBIES PART 3: THE 107 STRAIGHT BILLIARD (3 May 2015)–Revision to the date this shape appeared, along with new illustrations.

CLOSING THE GAP: THE MYTHOS OF PETERSON’S SPACE-FITTING SYSTEM STEM (8 June 2015)–Revision incorporating Master Carver Paddy Larrigan’s answers to my questions!

  1. Hello Mark,
    Just re-reading the June 25, 2014 re the St Patrick’s Day pipes: You have the following text: “2002’s D7—another no longer produced shape—was another highlight.” If it’s of interest, I’ve just bought a D7 in excellent condition and is has the silvermark ‘O’ (ie. year 2000); also engraved ‘2001’ on the underside of the silver band (seller suggested this had been done for a pipe club). Kind regards, David

  2. Hi Mark,
    Thanks for your prompt reply. Yes, I’ll do some photos tomorrow and send them so you can choose which you want to use. I’d also be interested to know more about the D7 pipe if possible – do you know if it was a special edition or part of a reproduction set or what? (The design looks very like a 1903 BBB pipe I had.) – tho’ I appreciate you’ll be very busy.
    Kind regards,

  3. Hi Mark, I have just acquired a D7 fishtail from a gentleman in Denmark, it has a silver band that has 2000 and sterling silver engraved on it, the hallmark is a bit small to make out,could you please tell me a little bit more about it?

    • Hi David, did you look at the entry here on the blog for the D shapes? It’s about as comprehensive a guide as I can give you. The hallmark for 2000 would be an “O.” Sometimes they can be blurred and even unreadable. Your shape is still in production, although now only found in the churchwarden or, if you can find one, in the short-stemmed Outdoor line. Hope this helps!
