Savinelli: Riccio (601) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-46593
A modestly sized bent Billiard appropriate for dropping into a jacket pocket, Savinelli's "601" is a sturdy take on the pipe chart standard, with a wide heel, high-set transition, and slightly tapering bowl. While quite muscular and visually significant in its shaping, the shank of this "601" doesn't over tighten the transition, extending at a 45 degree angle, almost to the height of the rim, for a comfortable thumb rest between shank and bowl.
The Savinelli family has long shared their love of the sea through their pipes, with series like the Onda and Oceano coming to mind in particular. Added to those ocean-inspired lines is the Riccio, meaning "sea urchin" in Italian, and presenting a crisply striated rustication overtop a virgin finish. While the texture and natural briar calls to mind the Cocco series, the Riccio orients its grooved streaks differently as they emanate from the side of the lower bowl for a slightly offset position that better resembles its namesake. Fitting further with the line's theme, this piece is fitted with a stem of proprietary acrylic — the sea urchin-purple and -orange tones contrasting against the stummel's natural hue, which will darken as this pipe is enjoyed over the years.- Chuck Stanion
