Savinelli: Oscar Tiger Smooth (127) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-43067
The "127" Billiard design from Savinelli is, essentially, a saddle-stemmed rendition of the Italian marque's "128" version. As such, it's one of their larger interpretations, and the saddle stem accentuates the stummel's presence even more. The tall bowl commands much of the profile's visual weight, and the "127" is notably longer and more muscular compared to Savinelli's "106" and "104" Billiards, while also being slightly stouter than their trim "107" design. Like the "128," this pipe is an ideal choice for fans of classic shapes but who desire a piece with a bit more substance all around and who favor saddle stems over tapered varieties.
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 lighter tones of the stem echo the vibrant hue of the stummel in this smooth rendition, complemented further by a trim brass band.-Truett Smith
