Italian Estates: Savinelli Eleganza Smooth Natural (622 KS) (6mm) (Unsmoked) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-006-34025
Compared to other Italian pipemakers, Savinelli fashions shapes that hew closer to traditional English and French standards of proportions. While much of Italian pipe design opts for dramatic and stylized renditions of classic shapes — with bowls that are starkly taller and broader and shanks that are comparatively more slender — Savinelli presents more balanced dimensions in their pipes, leaning slightly toward this Italian design cue but still remaining quite true to tradition. This "622 KS" bent Pot is an excellent example of Savinelli's devotion to classic shaping and is perhaps the most English-styled shape on the Italian marque's chart. The proportions between the stout shank and hearty bowl are balanced and consistent, neither dominating the visual weight, and it remains a comfortable piece when clenched thanks to the stem's downward turn and angle of the transition — offering a deeper bend than Savinelli's other bent Pots, the "121 KS" and "122" designs.
Designed to celebrate Savinelli's distinct take on fine Italian luxury, the Eleganza series presents a classic spigot style pipe that's modernized through the use of a proprietary blue acrylic stem — specifically created to echo the marque's iconic colors. Crafted to emulate the appearance of a spigot mount, with fitments along the stem base and shank end, this pipe still features a standard tenon arrangement, allowing the accommodation of a 6mm balsa filter. Aptly named, the Eleganza line personifies Italian elegance, especially here in this smooth, natural finish, the flashy accoutrements offering a touch of refinement to complement the stummel's vivid hue.-Truett Smith
