Savinelli: Regimental Smooth Bordeaux (624 KS) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-49284
Overall, the "624 KS" bent Bulldog from Savinelli maintains a highly traditional form, both in shaping cues and relative proportions. That said, it also features a contrasting blend of softness and rigidity. Through the diamond shank, the lines are crisp and firm; at the bowl, though, the design is softened a touch, trading the Bulldog shape's conventional beadlines for a rounded, supple ridgeline at the waist. That softness is matched by the shank and stem's gentle, languid bend, while the bowl offers a comfortable substance in hand.
In honor of the British Army's Cheshire Regiment, Savinelli here presents the Regimental series, featuring rusticated and smooth-finished versions. Before being merged to form the Mercian Regiment and 1st Battalion in 2003, the Cheshire Regiment was the only remaining British infantry regiment never to have been amalgamated, and it boasted a rich history dating over 300 years, beginning originally as the 22nd Regiment of Foot and expanded in 1881 with volunteers from Cheshire. The insignia and dress ties of the regiment display its identifying gold and burgundy color palette, and Savinelli has leaned into that aesthetic for this series, with each pipe featuring a burgundy-hued acrylic stem with twin bands of golden yellow adorning the base.-Truett Smith
