Savinelli: Saint Nicholas 2019 (626) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-44231
While Savinelli features several bent Apples on their standard shape chart, this "626" is their signature, archetypal rendition. It's also the trimmest version offered by the Italian marque, presenting a leaner disposition compared to, say, the "636 KS" and "642" shapes and leaning more into the traditional English style. Defined by a slightly bulging bowl, stretched heel and transition, and lithely bent stem, this iconic "626" is a versatile piece of moderate size and natural in hand feel — perfect for those interested in an Italian-made pipe but one of more restrained, classic proportions.
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.-Truett Smith
