Killarney Red pipes are one of the flagship lines in the Peterson catalog. The finish is smooth and glossy with a wonderful hand feel. Each pipe will provide a lifetime of smoking pleasure that only a Peterson can.
This was the most expensive pipe I have ever purchased.
The pipe cracked in half, in less than 20 days after my purchase. This was supposed to be a quality, collector, special item to add to my collection. It was not. Beyond disappointed.
My speciality and experience is pipe smoking and tobacco and while not a professional I have been smoking pipes for 53 years. I took the time to break in the pipe, season the pipe and properly pack the pipe. I cannot tell you how upset and disappointed I was.
Based on my experience I cannot recommend or suggest Peterson Pipes. The Peterson name, quality and reputation simply was not there.
I would like to say Cigar.Com customer assistance is a 5 star quality service! They shipped a replacement pipe the very same day I notified them. They provided easy return instructions, postage paid and followed up through the entire process to make sure I received a new pipe was a satisfied customer and tracked/inspected the broken Peterson.
You cannot find that level of trust and customer satisfaction these days!
I am and will always be a Cigar.com customer!!!
