Peterson Killarney 106, Straight Billiard Estate Briar Pipe, P-Lip [SOLD OUT]


Out of stock


Peterson pipes generally need no introduction, but just in case you’re unfamiliar: in 1876, a Latvian named Charles Peterson immigrated to Ireland and was hired making pipes in a workshop owned by Frederick and George Kapp. After rising through the ranks to become head craftsman, Peterson bought into the Kapp’s business, which was renamed, Kapp & Peterson (K&P). During this time, Peterson himself applied for several patents for pipe designs, including the world-famous Peterson’s System. Since then, Peterson has become one of the most recognizable names in pipe smoking and continues to produce high quality pipes from their headquarters in Dublin.

The Killarney is one of Peterson’s oldest lines, debuting all the way back in 1949. It has, however, gone through a number of iterations. The modern Killarney pipes are offered in shades of red and ebony, with nickel rings sandwiching an acrylic inlay. Prior to this, between 1986 and 1990, the Killarney pipes had a single nickel band. This one, on the other hand, has qualities that appear to make it much older, with one entry in The Peterson Pipe Book appearing to signal that it was made for US export around 1957. That’s pretty cool.

The pipe itself is very nice. It’s a lot simpler than many modern Peterson designs, but it has the kind of grain that is reserved for their higher end lines today. It has a nice mix of cross and flame grain, accentuated by a very natural, golden brown stain. These are complemented by its simple black vulcanite, P-lip stem. The pipe is also in really great condition, with the stem still jet black (with the stem ‘K’ logo preserved) and the bowl free of any significant wear.
