Savinelli: Saint Nicholas 2019 (106) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-45921
While Italian pipes are popularly known for their dramatic, bowl-centric sense of proportions, Savinelli's "106" leans more into the classic English design. Compared to the Italian marque's other straight Billiards, like the "101," "111 KS," "128," and "141 KS," the "106" Billiard is rendered in trimmer style, with more balanced proportions between bowl and shank. It's a wonderful rendition of the classic form, archetypically English and perfect for those interested in the history and quality of Savinelli but prefer a more conservative, reserved size.
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
