Savinelli: Roma (510 EX) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-52971
The largest straight Bulldog on Savinelli's shape chart, the "510 KS" is a bold rendition that's made even more so here in EX size designation. While catering to classic English shaping standards, this "510 EX" adds extra height to the bowl and presents a strongly tapered, angular presence above the shape's characteristic, equatorial beadlines or ridgeline. It's an inherently masculine design, marked by hard, rigid lines through the diamond shank and stem and muscular proportions throughout, catering to appreciators of traditional shapes rendered in robust style.
It's only fitting that one of Italy's most historic and esteemed pipe manufacturers would devote a line to one of the country's most celebrated cities: Rome. From Antiquity and empire to Renaissance and cultural center, the Italian capital tells the story of millennia through its architecture, statues, piazzas, and fountains. Savinelli's Roma series pays tribute to this history, presenting a dark rustication, accented with a trim, brass ring at the base of the vulcanite stem. The lighter-stained, smooth-polished rim echoes that elegant contrast, and the mouthpiece trades the Italian marque's usual coat of arms logo for one emblazoned with an "R," distinguishing the Rome-inspired line.-Truett Smith
