Peterson: Kapp Royal (6) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-57661
With a diverse range of straight Billiard shapes, Peterson caters to every smoker's personal preferences, ensuring that there's a Peterson Billiard for everyone. In the "06" (or "6" as it's sometimes stamped), the Irish marque presents one of their more slimmed down iterations — less robust than the "X105," "106," and "107" while still maintaining Peterson's conventional muscularity more than, say, the "15." It's a perfect, middle-of-the-road choice for those interested in something that tows the line between the robust Irish aesthetic and traditional English style.
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 pipe smoking 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
