Savinelli: Onda Smooth (106) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-49659
While Italian pipes are popularly known for their dramatic, bowl-centric sense of proportions, Savinelli's "106" leans more into the classic English design. Compared to the Italian marque's other straight Billiards, like the "101," "111 KS," "128," and "141 KS," the "106" Billiard is rendered in trimmer style, with more balanced proportions between bowl and shank. It's a wonderful rendition of the classic form, archetypically English and perfect for those interested in the history and quality of Savinelli but prefer a more conservative, reserved size.
A rather reserved series from Savinelli, the Onda line is presented here in its smooth version — the stummel stained a vibrant, mahogany hue to contrast the jet-black acrylic stem. 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.-Truett Smith
