Peterson: Killarney Red (605) Fishtail Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-029-116744

Similar to the "606" and "608" from Peterson, the "605" Pot exudes the Irish marque's muscular style, but it also presents a few notable revisions. Compared to its counterparts, the shank and stem of the "605" are markedly trimmer and lengthier, eschewing Peterson's typically tubular aesthetic in favor of a lithe and elegant profile. However, the bowl is also substantially stouter, making the "605" ideal for those who prefer pipes of a lightweight demeanor but don't want to sacrifice chamber capacity.

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.
