WARNING: SMOKING KILLS KA MATE KOE I TE KAI HIKARETI

Peterson Pipes

Before it was Peterson Pipes it was the Kapp Brothers - Friedrich and Heinrich Kapp, German immigrants to Ireland from Nürnberg, Germany, who founded the famed Kapp Brothers store on Grafton Street, Dublin, in 1865.

Then one day a Latvian immigrant, Charles Peterson, strolled into the Kapp workshop and declared that he could make better pipes than they.

Armed with an imaginative flair for pipes and a craftsman's background, Peterson not only proved himself correct, but became the third partner in the fledgling firm.

Perhaps the most notable design from the Kapp and Peterson factory was Peterson's famed 'Dry System' pipes, patented in 1894. Featuring a small reservoir intended to collect moisture before it reaches the smoker, the System Pipe makes for a cool smoke that minimizes tongue bite and the disgusting "juice" that is the bane of every pipe smoker.

Indeed, it is on this groundbreaking design that the worldwide reputation of Peterson grew. During the last hundred years, Kapp and Peterson have grown tremendously without losing sight of their original dedication to quality, handcrafted products at a reasonable price.

Made in Ireland.
