Peterson: Kapp Royal (B11) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-49211
Though a part of Peterson's standard shape chart, the Irish marque's "B" shapes fall a bit outside of convention, each design being more eccentric compared to traditional pipe chart standards. In the case of the "B11," the Irish marque presents a flat-bottomed bent Brandy, affording the practical comforts of a bent pipe alongside the sturdy, upright posture of a sitter. The strongly tapered bowl showcases Peterson's voluptuous shaping style and also ensures an easy, ergonomic feel in hand.
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
