Peterson: Tyrone (XL02) Fishtail Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-82441
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.
First released in the early 1990s, Peterson's Tyrone series was named for County Tyrone in Northern Ireland, a historical region originally called Tír Eoghan, "Land of Eoghan" in the Irish language. The Tryone line was discontinued in the early '00s, but Peterson resurrected the series in 2021 with modern appointments and a fresh finish. Like the originals, new Tyrone pipes bear a smooth finish and trim brass accents but trade the earlier version's walnut stain for the Irish marque's dark and smoky Heritage finish. Like Peterson's Aran Smooth and Killarney series, the Tyrone offers pipes in a smooth finish and distinctive, traditional color palette at an accessible price, but is distinguished from the chestnut stain of the Aran and the Red and Ebony versions of the nickel-accented Killarney. Beautifully alluring and with just the right balance of refined class and understated elegance, this Peterson Tyrone pipe is perfect for those interested in a reserved and traditional finish at a wallet-friendly price.-Truett Smith
