Peterson: Killarney Red (6) Fishtail Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-89232
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 "6," 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 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 Killarney features a vivid, ruby stain, over which a lacquer finish is applied for added protection and a higher sheen. The color palette calls to mind traditional English finishes of the early 20th century, hearkening back to an era when darker stains were the norm (lighter finishes wouldn't become popular until the decade before WWII). Fitted with twin rings of nickel, the Killarney boasts a formal, vintage appeal, similar to the black-and-chrome dress pipe motif, but with a more colorful persona.-Truett Smith
