Savinelli: Roma (603) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-59800
Savinelli's "601" and "603" bent Billiard designs are among the Italian marque's smallest renditions, outmatched only by Savinelli's Petite shape versions and the extra-small "609" bent Billiard. The "601" and "603" offer compact lengths and more diminutive bowls than Savinelli's KS and EX size designations, and presented here is the "603." It features essentially the same stummel as the "601," marked by a softly angled transition, upright bowl, and rounded heel, but it's fitted with a saddle stem as opposed to the tapered mouthpiece of the "601."
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
