Savinelli: Regimental Smooth Bordeaux (626) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-53628
While Savinelli features several bent Apples on their standard shape chart, this "626" is their signature, archetypal rendition. It's also the trimmest version offered by the Italian marque, presenting a leaner disposition compared to, say, the "636 KS" and "642" shapes and leaning more into the traditional English style. Defined by a slightly bulging bowl, stretched heel and transition, and lithely bent stem, this iconic "626" is a versatile piece of moderate size and natural in hand feel — perfect for those interested in an Italian-made pipe but one of more restrained, classic proportions.
In honor of the British Army's Cheshire Regiment, Savinelli here presents the Regimental series, featuring rusticated and smooth-finished versions. Before being merged to form the Mercian Regiment and 1st Battalion in 2003, the Cheshire Regiment was the only remaining British infantry regiment never to have been amalgamated, and it boasted a rich history dating over 300 years, beginning originally as the 22nd Regiment of Foot and expanded in 1881 with volunteers from Cheshire. The insignia and dress ties of the regiment display its identifying gold and burgundy color palette, and Savinelli has leaned into that aesthetic for this series, with each pipe featuring a burgundy-hued acrylic stem with twin bands of golden yellow adorning the base.-Truett Smith
