Savinelli: Tortuga Rusticated (626) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-43366
The Savinelli Tortuga series is aptly named, "tortuga" being the Spanish word for tortoise. Each briar is marked not only by a tortoiseshell-patterned stem but also a domed, shell-like chamber cap. The purpose of the latter is to preserve an unfinished smoke which one wishes to pick up again to finish later — no doubt many of us have done just that, only to find the pipe has tipped over and spilled its contents. This example comes in the "626" shape, Savinelli's signature bent Apple, offered here in a delightful rustication.-Truett Smith
