Savinelli: Spinosa (616 KS) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-51967
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.
Drawing inspiration from nature, Savinelli's Spinosa series derives its name from the Italian word for "thorny" or "spiny," continuing the marque's penchant for organically inclined, nature-based themes. The spot-carved motif adorning the naturally finished stummel evokes the look of a cactus flower and its prickly thorns, with its radiating needle pattern, while the rich, green acrylic stem further enhances this piece's organic appeal. Thanks to the virgin finish, the stummel will also gradually develop a patina with time and enjoyment, adding even more character to the evocative finish.- Jeffery Sitts
