Savinelli: Onda Sandblasted (616 KS) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-49517
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.
A rather reserved series from Savinelli, the Onda line is presented here in its sandblasted version — the stummel stained a dark hue, with hints of lighter, contrasting color peeking out along the textured peaks of the finish to match the smooth-polished briar of the rim. In Italian onda means "wave," and that motif is manifested in the twin accent rings adorning the shank end: Two brass and nickel accoutrements meet in a wavy, undulating pattern, inspired by the line's sea-worthy namesake to add a dose of flash to the color palette.- Jeffery Sitts
