Savinelli: Bamboo Rusticated Natural (626) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-54976
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.
Virgin-finished pipes are beloved by pipe smokers for their natural color palette and patinating ability, the briar gradually darkening with character as the pipe is smoked. Savinelli is no stranger to such a presentation, offering a number of virgin-finished pieces in the Italian marque's Riccio, Cocco, Ghibli, Noce, and Spinosa lines, all with distinct textures and color palettes. Joining that selection is the Bamboo series, presenting pipes in a unique, rusticated texture that emulates the look of the line's namesake. A caramel-hued acrylic mouthpiece completes the aesthetic, with a pale-green accent ring modeled after the color of bamboo's leaves.-Truett Smith
