158. Killer B Redux: A Peterson – James Fox “Hunter” Gallery (2014)

 

 

Here’s just a bit of lagniappe from Yiorgos Manesis, manager of James Fox in Dublin (formerly online as Pipe Divan, now at www.jamesfox.ie): a gallery of photos Yiorgos took in 2014 of the “killer B” shapes used in “The Hunter” 9mm collection, which included several special collections as well as some amazing pipe of the year shapes. Enjoy!

 

The 1989 Baskerville XL12, from the Original Sherlock Holmes Collection

 

The gorgeous and rarely-seen second part of the 2000 Pipe of the Year Set, the B13.
Nice rustication.

 

The B8, from c. 2000

 

Two views of the massive “Shackleton,” B19, from 2002’s Great Explorer Collection

 

Three aspects of B27, the 2007 POY, a fantastic panel billiard

 

Two views of the B32, originally the Lee from 2007’s Rivers Collection. One of the most remarkable,
and remarkably Irish, shapes in the entire Peterson catalog.

 

think this is the B34 Birr, originally from the 2009 Castles Collection . . . I think . . . 

 

And this is the B40, originally the Birr from the 2009 Castles collection

 

The little B36 barrel, originally the Malahide from 2009’s Castle Collection

 

Two views of the B38 canoe, another incredible quaint which was originally the Glinn in the 2009 Castles Collection

 

Two views of the panel quaint stack B39, another from the Castle Collection

 

Essential views revealing the sinuous shank of the 2009 POY, the B41

 

The B45 Joyce, from 2010’s Writers Collection,
one of my favorite of all the Dublin shapes

 

The B47 dublin, originally the Wilde from 2010’s Writers Collection

 

The B54, 2011’s POY, a fresh take on the panel

 

Two views of the sumptuous 2013 POY, the B62

 

Many thanks to Yiorgos Manesis at James Fox,
