Savinelli: Roma (101) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-46702
Savinelli's "101" Billiard is a muscular take on the shape chart standard — undeniably Italian in its execution, evidenced by the robust bowl and firm heel underneath. Such shaping cues call to mind the marque's "141 KS" Billiard, only here, the bowl of the "101" has a much stouter appearance due to the shank being considerably thicker, continuing the hearty precedent set by the bowl. This piece is also one of the shortest Billiards offered by the Italian firm, making it a substantial pipe that houses a good bit of chamber, while still being easily manageable and relatively compact.
It's only fitting that one of Italy's most historic and esteemed pipe manufacturers would devote a line to one of the country's most celebrated cities: Rome. From Antiquity and empire to Renaissance and cultural center, the Italian capital tells the story of millennia through its architecture, statues, piazzas, and fountains. Savinelli's Roma series pays tribute to this history, presenting a dark rustication, accented with a trim, brass ring at the base of the vulcanite stem. The lighter-stained, smooth-polished rim echoes that elegant contrast, and the mouthpiece trades the Italian marque’s usual coat of arms logo for one emblazoned with an "R," distinguishing the Rome-inspired line.- Jeffery Sitts
