Savinelli: Otello Smooth (645 KS) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-34521
Savinelli's "645 KS" is a wide, stout take on the bent Brandy, the bowl prioritizing breadth over height, yet still boasting a respectably deep chamber within. The bowl wears its waistline low before subtly tapering up toward the rim, while the transition offers ample room for the thumb to rest. Unlike the Italian marque's "628" bent Brandy, the "645 KS" is a low-slung take on the classic shape with the bowl more Apple-esque in its curvature, and it displays a greater degree of bend compared to the "144 KS." It's an ideal choice for pipe smokers who prefer robust, substantial designs that also remain balanced and lightweight enough to be clenched comfortably in the jaw.
Based on Shakespeare's Othello, the four-act opera Otello was written by Giuseppe Verdi to accompany an Arrigo Boito libretto and was first performed in 1887. It was the Aida composer's penultimate work and follows Shakespeare's tragic story of General Othello. Savinelli pays homage to the famous Italian opera in the Otello line, marked by two distinct finishes, a svelte nickel accent, and a stem-and-shank configuration that emulates a military mount. Found here in the smooth version, this piece wears a pleasant, auburn stain for vivid grain definition.- Jeffery Sitts
