For those who like a small twist on a classic shape, the Peterson Killarney Red 68 tobacco pipe is perfect for you. Being similar to the Peterson 69 model (Bent Billiard), the 68 offers a larger body pipe for those who like to have a little more meat on the bones. Sporting a rich, deep ruby red finish and glaring nickel band, the Killarney 68 will look as good as it feels in your hand.

I am relatively new to smoking a pipe. Watching several YouTube videos, there have been multiple smokers who mentioned Peterson as a great company. I watched some more videos, and figured that there was one consensus from all of the pipe smokers... spend a good amount on a good pipe and it will be a better experience. I decided on this one because I like the look of it. It is awesome, and I love the filter-less design. I will be buying more Peterson pipes in the future.
So I am new to the pipe seen. I actually got involved by making my own pipes. I came across a video of the making of a Peterson pipe and fell in love with the beautiful work they did. I wanted one then and to use as a model for my handmade pipes. In looking up a place to order a pipe like this I found this site to have the best price on it. I have forgotten what I paid for in shipping but I will not forget the first smoke of this pipe. I have only had it for a couple of weeks now and have smoked it at least 7 times being that I very seldom smoke a pipe. However it was a great smoke not dry and harsh but more of a cool relaxing feeling. I would very much recommend this pipe or spend a few more bucks and get one with silver and not nickel.
