Savinelli: Gaius Smooth (141 KS) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-45301
Savinelli's "141 KS" is a robust, thoroughly Italian take on the timeless Billiard that houses an appropriately deep chamber within its incredibly hearty, towering bowl. The stout, round shank matches the bowl's muscularity and further complements the shape's sturdy, resolute disposition before the gradually tapering mouthpiece wraps everything up with its clean, angled lines. The "141 KS" is easily one the the best examples of the marque's neoclassic approach to traditional English shapes — taking classic designs and emphasizing the bowl's prominence, resulting in a substantial pipe that fills the hand effortlessly.
Named after the Roman praenomen ("given name"), Savinelli's Gaius series continues the marque's thematic lines that pay homage to Italy's rich history. Most likely derived from the Latin word gaudere meaning "to rejoice," Gaius was a common name within the ancient Roman Republic — Gaius Julius Caesar and Gaius Octavius, later Augustus, being perhaps the most prolific title bearers. In this example, the stummel wears a vivid, honey-blonde stain, accentuating the briar's natural grain underneath. The marque then incorporates a jet-black acrylic mount and mouthpiece, as well as a single white band between the shank and mount, to complete the composition.- Jeffery Sitts
