Italian Estates: Savinelli Monsieur Sandblasted (121 KS) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-006-35319
With its wide chamber and firm, jutting heel, Savinelli's "121 KS" is a thoroughly Italian take on the bent Pot shape. The bold, muscular bowl garners much of the visual attention but is expertly balanced out by the saddle stem's graceful downward turn — softening the design's masculine profile while also allowing the shape to be more comfortably clenched. The chamber's thick, insulating walls provide plenty of substance between the smoker and the burning leaf inside and offer a substantial presence in hand. The "121 KS" is also notably similar to the Italian marque's other bent Pot design, the "122," with the primary difference between them being the breadth of their bowls as the "121 KS" here has been lent some additional width around its base.
Similar to the Tortuga series, Savinelli's Monsieur line offers pipes with an included chamber cap, making them especially handy for saving a partial smoke while on the go — keeping the remaining tobacco from drying out and preventing ash from filling your pocket. However, unlike the vivid pattern of the Tortuga series, the Monsieur opts for a more reserved presentation, the stummel here treated to a crisp sandblast and handsomely accented by two trim, bright metal rings along the base of the jet-black acrylic mouthpiece.-Truett Smith
