Savinelli: Columbus Nina (703 KS) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-45272
The "701" and "703 KS" shapes are Savinelli's interpretations of the classic Lovat, displaying the same general combination of Billiard bowl, elongated shank, and abbreviated saddle stem, but they vary in their proportions, catering to different pipesmokers' preferences. Seen here is the "703 KS," which increases the overall size of the "701" and adds more muscularity to the stretched shank. With more chamber depth and added overall length, it's an ideal choice for those interested in a larger Lovat, the design doing well to exemplify Savinelli's signature style — maintaining a traditional English aesthetic but dramatizing the proportions.
On August the third, 1492, two sleek ships (referred to as "caravels") named Nina and Pinta, along with a larger carrack, the Santa María, set sail from Spain to find an expeditious route to the East Indies, the voyage led by Cristopher Columbus. Savinelli's aptly named series is dedicated to the explorer and the ships that accompanied him, with each iteration of the line paying homage to one of the ships and distinguished by a unique finish and accent. Presented here is the Nina, marked by a dark rustication that contrasts against three rings of nickel separated by deep azure acrylic.-Truett Smith
