Among the most popular shapes we make at Peterson is the XL90, a large, chubby, voluptuously curved and proportioned bent Billiard. However, that shape has a history going back to the days of Charles Peterson himself, evolving from the original patent shape, the 9.

The "9" number designation refers to the shape that's been in our catalog since 1896, with the "B" indicating a tapered stem, and the "C" referring to the shortened stem length. It's a curvy, sensual pipe, full of organic inclines and slopes, and graceful curvature, and it's our Pipe of the Year for 2020. The 9BC is a large pipe, though of compact length, and was, for a time, the largest regular pipe offered. Rather than a military mount, the piece is wrapped at the end of the shank with a wide band of sterling silver, providing a subtler contrast but with impressive presence. The transition rides more than halfway up the bowl and introduces the broad shank and "tubular aesthetic" that our pipes are famous for.

Much of our reputation has been built on the famous System engineering pioneered by Charles Peterson, but System pipes are not for everyone, and the 9BC is not a System pipe. Rather, it is fitted without a moisture reservoir, maintaining regular engineering through the stem and shank for those who prefer non-System smoking.

The "9BC" is essentially the predecessor to the modern XL90, featuring a tapered stem, a taller, more Egg-like bowl, a more sinuous curve through the shank, and more obvious cheeking around the transition. Collectors have searched out the original 9BCs, and they are a popular rarity, so we're especially pleased to offer them again, now as our Pipe of the Year.

For 2020, we have returned to our origins and revived a shape that's proven popular for more than a century, one that displays the broad rounded curvature and compact aesthetic of earlier manufacture. The 9BC is not only a respectful and appreciative gesture to our past, but a pipe that we believe will prove popular into the future
