Peterson: Kapp Royal Barrel Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-43979
The Barrel is Peterson's unique take on the Poker shape. Like the Poker, it features a flattened heel and raised transition, prompting sturdy, upright sitting. Instead of a cylindrical bowl, however, the Barrel bulges at the flanks for a more muscular form befitting its namesake. Despite this rotundness, it remains one of the Irish marque's more svelte and slender shapes — the abbreviated shank and slightly longer stretch of stem lending its profile a sleek, streamlined disposition.
Like the Rosslare lines, Peterson's Kapp Royal series pairs the Irish marque's popular shapes with sterling silver mounts and stems of vivid, amber-hued acrylic. It's a throwback to a 1960's and 1970's series and pays homage to the Kapp family, émigrés from Germany who opened a pipe shop in Dublin in 1874 and for whom Latvian immigrant Charles Peterson worked as a craftsman. Through this partnership was born Kapp & Peterson — now known and beloved across the pipesmoking world as simply Peterson. The Kapp Royal line is marked by a smooth, mahogany finish, Peterson's signature, in-house silverwork, and sunny stems to emulate the vintage look of amber, making for a bright and striking aesthetic.-Truett Smith
