Peterson: Kildare Silver Mounted (127) P-Lip Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-029-104208
When first released, the "127" shape was designated as the "D15." Originally produced for Peterson's Danish distributor, Larsen and Peterson, around 1996, the "D" line focused on traditional Danish shaping, creating shapes that were more slender and elegantly curved compared to the hearty Irish style typically personified in Peterson's portfolio. The "D15," or "127" now, is an angled take on the bent Dublin — the transition sharply curled to create a prominent, almost pointed heel below the flaring bowl. Per Danish shaping cues, the lines and curves are soft and sleek, the form marked by trim proportions and a forward-urging dynamism.
Similar to the Aran series, Peterson's Kildare Silver Mounted line displays a traditional color palette, pairing of chocolatey walnut stains with jet-black mouthpieces to give each pipe a timeless, traditional look. However, the main difference between the Aran and Kildare lines is the accent work — the Aran displays nickel mounts, while the Kildare opts for sterling silver. Not only does it highlight Peterson's highly respected and renowned silver work, it ensures each piece is as classic as it is handsome.-Truett Smith
