Savinelli: Tortuga Smooth (129) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-52003
Well on the shorter side of Savinelli's size spectrum, the "129" is a charmingly compact Billiard. What truly sets it apart from some of the Italian marque's other Billiard shapes is the use of a triangular shank — a signature Savinelli design element. It provides a striking juxtaposition when paired to a tall, poised Billiard bowl, like the one seen here. While it's fairly petite in regards to overall size, there's still plenty of muscularity throughout the proportions of this "129," with the firm, yet rounded lines of the shank providing some subtle sturdiness in hand.
Named after the Spanish word for "tortoise," Savinelli's Tortuga series is undeniably effective in its theme. The striking line is marked by a tortoiseshell-patterned acrylic stem, the mosaic-like visual texture of amber and caramel tones complementing the dark walnut stain of the stummel. Furthering the theme, the Italian marque pairs each briar with an acrylic chamber cap to match the stem — perfect for saving an unfinished bowl for later without fear of spilling ash, or for filling the chamber and slipping it into a jacket pocket so you're always ready for whenever an opportunity to smoke presents itself throughout the day.- Jeffery Sitts
