Italian Estates: Savinelli Roma (513 KS) (6mm) (Unsmoked) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-006-35901
The Foursquare is a classic pipe shape, but it's most often rendered in straight configuration. Savinelli presents a bent version in the "513 KS" design. Like the traditional Foursquare, this piece offers the intriguing firmness of a paneled bowl and shank, but it angles the transition and turns the stem downward for a more balanced posture when clenched. Such a form retains the classic appeal of the pipe chart standard while subtly adding Savinelli's own creativity.
It's only fitting that one of Italy's most historic and esteemed pipe manufacturers would devote a line to one of the country's most celebrated cities: Rome. From Antiquity and empire to Renaissance and cultural center, the Italian capital tells the story of millennia through its architecture, statues, piazzas, and fountains. Savinelli's Roma series pays tribute to this history, presenting a dark rustication, accented with a trim, brass ring at the base of the vulcanite stem. The lighter-stained, smooth-polished rim echoes that elegant contrast, and the mouthpiece trades the Italian marque's usual coat of arms logo for one emblazoned with an "R," distinguishing the Rome-inspired line.-Truett Smith
