Up until this point, I have been focused more on getting a broad range of shapes I like in my collection. With a few exceptions that haven't lasted in the collection, I don't really double up on shapes. That said, I've been hunting for more small bowls in shapes that really stoke me, and I seem to have fallen in love with Peterson's Canadians. A few months ago I got a great little smooth Kapet 265 and it's been wonderful to me. A few 264s crossed my path recently and, given the reasonable price, I had to grab them! The 264 is a touch larger, but it's still in the Group 2ish range. One is a blast finish Kapet - not quite as pretty as my smooth, but still nice. The second is a Donegal Rocky. It's an older style of rustication that I like much more than Peterson's current one. All are post-Republic but likely 70s or earlier. These pictures don't fully do them justice, but they're something.

From the sellers listing, the blast Kapet...

Of course, my "original" 265...

And all three together...

That Kapet is a great looking pipe.
