Savinelli: Marte Smooth (106) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-40659
While Italian pipes are popularly known for their dramatic, bowl-centric sense of proportions, Savinelli's "106" leans more into the classic English design. Compared to the Italian marque's other straight Billiards, like the "101," "111 KS," "128," and "141 KS," the "106" Billiard is rendered in trimmer style, with more balanced proportions between bowl and shank. It's a wonderful rendition of the classic form, archetypically English and perfect for those interested in the history and quality of Savinelli but prefer a more conservative, reserved size.
In Roman and, by default, Greek mythology, Mars (Ares in Greek) was considered the god of war, second of importance in the pantheon only to Jupiter (Zeus), his father. From his Roman moniker, we derive the name for the Red Planet, as well as the month of March — during which ancient Rome celebrated many of the deity's festivals. Inspired by this Roman and Italian heritage, Savinelli here presents the Marte line, meaning "Mars" in Italian. Characterized by a red-tinged, auburn stain and trio of copper and nickel accents to complement, the aesthetic draws inspiration from myths of old and offers a palette that echoes the iconic soil of the namesake planet.-Truett Smith
