Savinelli: Oscar Tiger Rusticated (128) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-41393
Savinelli's "128" Billiard is one of the marque's larger interpretations of the shape chart standard, the tall bowl commanding much of the profile's visual weight — a signature approach within Italian pipe making that's also a key aspect of Savinelli's immediately recognizable style. The bowl's prominence is further accentuated through the gradual taper of the arrow straight shank-and-stem combination. The "128" is notably longer and more muscular compared to the firm's "106" and "104" Billiards, while also being slightly stouter than their trim "107" design. This is an ideal choice for fans of classic shapes but who desire a pipe with a bit more substance all around.
The various iterations of the Oscar series from Savinelli are united by their pairing of traditional finishes with vibrant acrylic stems that feature the line's signature star logo. While the Oscar Lucite version presents only one aesthetic, the Oscar Tiger offers two distinct finishes, a dark rustication and smooth, auburn stain. Most defining of the Oscar Tiger line, though, is the striped acrylic stem, clearly calling to mind the fur of the series' namesake. The darker tones of the stem match the reserved hue of the stummel in this rusticated rendition, with the lighter notes providing accenting touches that echo the smooth-polished rim and trim brass ring.- Jeffery Sitts
