Savinelli: Tortuga Rusticated (127) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-15359
The Savinelli Tortuga series is aptly named, "tortuga" being the Spanish and Catalan word for tortoise. Each briar of this series sports not only a tortoiseshell-patterned stem, but also a domed, shell-like cap with a foam-rubber stopper. The purpose of the latter is to preserve an unfinished smoke which one wishes to pick up again to finish later - no doubt many of us have done just that, only to find the remaining tobacco dried to a crisp since we put the pipe out. This specimen sports the "127" shape, one of Savinelli's lighter classic straight Billiard variations, as accentuated by its saddle-bit stem.
