Peterson: Killarney Ebony (406) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-53547
While the "408" does display Prince-like elements, the "406" is Peterson's definitive take on the classic Prince shape. Seemingly plucked straight from a vintage English catalog, the profile displays the design's characteristically long, slightly downturned stem, informing its reputation for elegance. The bowl is squat and plump, with perhaps some extra heft to its base, per Peterson's signature shaping style, but the shank and transition are decidedly trimmer, catering more to traditional Anglo-French proportions than the robust, muscular aesthetic seen throughout the Irish marque's portfolio.
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
