Savinelli: Pannocchia (606 KS) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-40847
While many designs on Savinelli's shape chart cater more toward traditional English and French shaping cues when compared to the bold, bowl-centric proportions of other Italian makers, the "606 KS" bent Billiard leans more heavily into that Italian neoclassic style. The bowl is full and robust, dominating the visual weight to leave the shank and stem in more slender, supporting roles. Hearty of chamber, it poses a proud comforting disposition as one of Savinelli's largest bent Billiard renditions, with only the "616 KS" presenting a more muscular profile through the shank. The "606 KS" offers a substantial feel in hand, and the lithe bend and angled shank make for an effortless clench when smoking hands free.
Meaning "cob" in Italian, Savinelli's Pannocchia series derives inspiration from the classic American corn cob pipe in both its palette and texture, paying homage to a style of pipe nearly every smoker has enjoyed at some point. A kernel-like rustication dresses the stummel which has been left unstained, allowing this pipe to gradually develop a patina with time and use. A trim green acrylic band accents the shank end before leading to the vibrant, amber-hued mouthpiece, both elements furthering the corn cob aesthetic and sure to stand out even more as the natural finish darkens.-Truett Smith
