Savinelli: Saint Nicholas 2019 (606 KS) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-53429
While many designs on Savinelli's shape chart cater more toward traditional English and French shaping cues when compared to the bold, bowl-centric proportions of other Italian makers, the "606 KS" bent Billiard leans more heavily into that Italian neoclassic style. The bowl is full and robust, dominating the visual weight to leave the shank and stem in more slender, supporting roles. Hearty of chamber, it poses a proud comforting disposition as one of Savinelli's largest bent Billiard renditions, with only the "616 KS" presenting a more muscular profile through the shank. The "606 KS" offers a substantial feel in hand, and the lithe bend and angled shank make for an effortless clench when smoking hands free.
Each year Savinelli introduces their limited edition Saint Nicholas line, defined by a singular finish adorning the Italian marque's most popular shapes. For 2019, Savinelli presents this piece in a low-profile rustication, perfectly balancing smooth and rolling textures and finished in a dark, glossy, ruby-tinged chocolate stain. The stem base offers flashy, tinsel-like accent rings of nickel and brass, leading into the scarlet acrylic mouthpiece that calls to mind holly berries — all combining for a festive pipe to celebrate the Yuletide season.-Truett Smith
