Peterson: Killarney Ebony (XL02) Fishtail
Product Number: 002-029-70633
The "XL02" is, in essence, a fuller-bodied approach to the beloved "03" bent Apple, with added muscularity to the shank and transition. The visual weight of the shank relative to that of the bowl is a hallmark of Peterson's approach to shaping and distinguishes it from what we consider the classic English design of pipe making. It's a great example of the marque's signature aesthetic — the stout shank and voluptuous bowl blending well with the slender angle of the stem and tight transition.
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
