Savinelli: Tortuga Rusticated (128) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-16676
The Savinelli Tortuga series is aptly named, "tortuga" being the Spanish and Catalan word for tortoise. Each briar of this series sports not only a tortoiseshell-patterned stem, but also a domed, shell-like cap with a foam-rubber stopper. The purpose of the latter is to preserve an unfinished smoke which one wishes to pick up again to finish later - no doubt many of us have done just that, only to find the remaining tobacco dried to a crisp since we put the pipe out. This example comes in the form of a big, classic Italian straight Billiard.
