Irish Estates: Peterson Killarney (B63) (Fishtail) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-004-10386

The "B63" is based on an old Peterson shape from the Irish marque's 1906 catalog — one of a few short-stemmed pipes affectionately known as "Pats." It was first resurrected in 2013 as part of Peterson's fourth Antique Collection set, showcasing vintage designs from the historic marque's past. As a shape, the "B63" is a stout straight Billiard, exemplifying Peterson's iconic shaping style through a robust shank and equally muscular bowl.

Like many of Peterson's lines, the Killarney takes its name from an Irish town — in this case, one located in the southwest. Introduced in 1949, the Killarney features a vivid, ruby stain, over which a lacquer finish is applied for added protection and a higher sheen. The color palette calls to mind traditional English finishes of the early 20th century, hearkening back to an era when darker stains were the norm (lighter finishes wouldn't become popular until the decade before WWII). Fitted with twin rings of nickel, the Killarney boasts a formal, vintage appeal, similar to the black-and-chrome dress pipe motif, but with a more colorful persona.
