Savinelli: Saint Nicholas 2019 (106) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-44037
While Italian pipes are popularly known for their dramatic, bowl-centric sense of proportions, Savinelli's "106" leans more into the classic English design. This Billiard is rendered in highly proportional style, archetypically English with a shank that's perfectly balanced with the bowl. It's a wonderful rendition of the classic form, perfect for those interested in the history and quality of Savinelli but prefer a more conservative style.
Each year Savinelli introduces their limited edition Saint Nicholas line, defined by a singular finish adorning the Italian marque's most popular shapes. For 2019, Savinelli presents this piece in a low-profile rustication, perfectly balancing smooth and rolling textures and finished in a dark, glossy, ruby-tinged chocolate stain. The stem base offers flashy, tinsel-like accent rings of nickel and brass, leading into the scarlet acrylic mouthpiece that calls to mind holly berries — all combining for a festive pipe to celebrate the Yuletide season.- Matt Zwier
