Savinelli: Roma Lucite (602) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-48937
Trimmer and more lithe than is usual in typically robust Italian pipe design, Savinelli's "602" is a bent Billiard with more of a Danish flair, especially noticeable in the sweeping curves of the silhouette and slight taper of the bowl toward the rim. The proportions between bowl and shank, though, return us to bowl-centric Italian territory, contributing to a bold, sporty, and active character, as appropriate in a sports car as in an armchair.
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 Lucite series pays tribute to this history, presenting a dark rustication, accented with a trim, brass ring at the base of the acrylic 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. Unlike the original Roma series, however, the Roma Lucite here trades the jet-black vulcanite stem for an acrylic one of shimmering satin hues, catering to those who prefer a more eye-catching aesthetic.- Chuck Stanion
