Peterson: Tyrone (65) Fishtail Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-101754
In terms of overall scale, Peterson's "65" bent Billiard is one of the Irish marque's smaller bent Billiard renditions, especially when compared to the likes of their "XL90" and "X220." While in a smaller package, however, the "65" still features Peterson's signature sense of proportions — the transition, shank, and stem base all quite robust in relation to the rest of the piece. This design cue separates the Irish aesthetic from that of the French and English pipe-making approach, with the "65" towing the line in its compact form but substantial presence. It's the perfect option for those who want the best of both worlds.
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 Tyrone 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
