Savinelli: Marte Rusticated (616 KS) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-47854
One of the most full-bodied examples of Savinelli's approach to the bent Billiard, the "616 KS" dramatizes the standard form with especially robust proportions. It features a hearty bowl and generous chamber with an equally plump shank and stem. It's noticeably more muscular and deep-chambered compared to the marque's other bent Billiards like the "606 KS," "670 KS," "602," and "603" designs. The "616 KS" offers plenty of reinforcing briar at its chamber walls, transition, and shank, filling the palm with ease and exemplifying what it means to be considered an iconic Italian bent Billiard.
In Roman and, by default, Greek mythology, Mars (Ares in Greek) was considered the god of war, second of importance in the pantheon only to Jupiter (Zeus), his father. From his Roman moniker, we derive the name for the Red Planet, as well as the month of March — during which ancient Rome celebrated many of the deity's festivals. Inspired by this Roman and Italian heritage, Savinelli here presents the Marte line, meaning "Mars" in Italian. Characterized by a dark rustication and trio of copper and nickel accents to contrast, the aesthetic draws inspiration from myths of old and offers a palette that echoes the iconic soil of the namesake planet.- Jeffery Sitts
