Savinelli: Oscar Tiger Smooth (601) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-43855
A modestly sized bent Billiard appropriate for dropping into a jacket pocket, Savinelli's "601" is a sturdy take on the pipe chart standard, with a wide heel, high-set transition, and slightly tapering bowl. While quite muscular and visually significant in its shaping, the shank of this "601" doesn't over tighten the transition, extending at a 45 degree angle, almost to the height of the rim, for a comfortable thumb rest between shank and bowl.
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.- Chuck Stanion
