Peterson: Killarney Ebony (106) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-48156
Peterson features several straight Billiards on their shape chart, such as the "06," "X105," and "106," and each vary slightly in regards to overall size and relative proportions, catering to smokers' preferences in chamber size, weight, and length. The "106," seen here, is one of the Irish marque's larger renditions — a touch taller and longer than both the "06" and "X105." It also exemplifies Peterson's hearty sense of proportions through the shank and transition, perfect for those who enjoy substantial briars and muscular iterations of classic shapes.
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 standard Killarney finish features a vivid, ruby stain, over which a lacquer finish is applied for added protection and a higher sheen. Here, however, the Ebony rendition trades that burnt umber hue for a glossy, jet-black color palette. Fitted with twin rings of nickel, the Killarney Ebony boasts a formal, elegant appeal, aligning with the black-and-chrome motif of the classy dress pipe aesthetic.-Truett Smith
