Peterson: Killarney Ebony (15) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-50722
Peterson's "15" is one of their lighter and trimmer straight Billiards, noticeably forgoing the Irish marque's conventionally robust and stout proportions. The "15" leans more towards the classic style often seen in vintage French briars with its shank and stem extended and slightly trimmed up to create a more slender, svelte appearance. It also scales back their signature muscular aesthetic and is an ideal option for anyone who appreciates Peterson's rich history and approach to pipemaking, but who prefers their briars on the slimmer side.
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.-Jeffery Sitts
