Savinelli: Ghibli Rusticated (606 KS) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-46111
While many designs on Savinelli's shape chart cater more toward traditional English and French shaping cues when compared to the bold, bowl-centric proportions of other Italian makers, the "606 KS" bent Billiard leans more heavily into that Italian neoclassic style. The bowl is full and robust, dominating the visual weight to leave the shank and stem in more slender, supporting roles. Hearty of chamber, it poses a proud comforting disposition as one of Savinelli's largest bent Billiard renditions, with only the "616 KS" presenting a more muscular profile through the shank. The "606 KS" offers a substantial feel in hand, and the lithe bend and angled shank make for an effortless clench when smoking hands free.
Savinelli's Ghibli series is named after the hot, dusty desert wind that originates in the Sahara and blows across the Mediterranean Sea during the spring and summer months — capable of producing powerful, hurricane force wind speeds. The Ghibli line presents one of the Italian marque's most evocative finishes, featuring a striated rustication pattern overtop unstained, natural briar. While the pairing calls to mind Savinelli's Riccio and Cocco lines, the Ghibli series orients its grooved streaks to emulate the shifting sand dunes of the desert landscape. Further accentuating the desert theme is the acrylic mouthpiece's sunny, yellow hue, accented with a mottled, marble-esque accent band. Both elements vibrantly contrast against the stummel's natural hue, which will gradually darken with time and use.-Truett Smith
