Italian Estates: Savinelli Extra Smooth Opera (9001) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-006-41851

Though stamped with "9001," this piece most closely resembles Savienlli's "901" shape. Savinelli's "901" is an Opera pipe; that is, a pipe whose bowl is oval to better fit into the pocket of a tuxedo. However, it's available in more standard length, as opposed to the more pocket friendly size the original design intended. The horizontally compressed, rounded bowl of the "901" is popular with or without intent to pocket carry, though. With a forward-jutting heel for a sturdier silhouette, all edges are rounded on the oval bowl, which sits at the end of a round shank, combining curvaceous appeal with mathematical precision. It's a shape that reminds us of times when a gentleman would never be without his pocket watch, handkerchief, and Opera pipe. This particular rendition is dressed in the Extra series' warm smooth finish.
