Peterson: Killarney Red (85) Fishtail Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-029-102201

Joining Peterson's "86" and "87" shapes, the "85" is a straight Apple rendition with a plump, rounded bowl. Out of those Apple iterations, though, the "85" is the most svelte and streamlined version, forgoing the often muscular proportions championed by the Irish marque in favor of a sleek and streamlined motif that prioritizes a petite overall size and lightweight profile. As such, it's ideal for those who appreciate smaller interpretations of classic shapes and perfect as a reliable travel companion and on-the-go pipe.

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.
