Italian Estates: Savinelli Alligator Blue (626) (6mm) (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-006-31863
While Savinelli features several bent Apples on their standard shape chart, this "626" is their signature, archetypal rendition. It's also the trimmest version offered by the Italian marque, presenting a leaner disposition compared to, say, the "636 KS" and "642" shapes and leaning more into the traditional English style. Defined by a slightly bulging bowl, stretched heel and transition, and lithely bent stem, this iconic "626" is a versatile piece of moderate size and natural in hand feel — perfect for those interested in an Italian-made pipe but one of more restrained, classic proportions.
Featuring a mix of smooth-polished panels and deep, rusticated channels, Savinelli's Alligator series presents a finish that readily evokes the scaly, bumpy hide of its namesake texturally and visually. The stummel's vibrant stain further accentuates its eye catching appeal while the trim brass band provides some subtle, refined contrast to the bowl's rugged disposition. For a playful accenting touch, the stem of each pipe features the stenciled silhouette of an alligator patiently awaiting its next meal — or bowl, rather.-Truett Smith
