Savinelli: Roma (623) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-47660
Both of Savinelli's bent Bulldog designs, the "623" and "624 KS," hew closely to the classic English and French standard and refrain from the dramatic disparity between proportions common within Italian pipe design. Exuding muscularity through its diamond shank and broad, ridgelined bowl, this "623" rendition is slightly smaller than the "624 KS" and presents a timelessly traditional take on the stolid, masculine form, with the angled transition and downturned stem softening the profile a touch and balancing the pipe comfortably when clenched.
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.-Truett Smith
