Savinelli: Riccio (316 KS) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-62127
The primary feature of a Pot is its broad tobacco chamber, and the Savinelli "316 KS" certainly fulfills that purpose. Particularly wide at the top, the chamber is conical, aligning with the shaping of the bowl, while the lithe shank and stem combination adds tasteful elegance through its curve. It's a remarkably organic interpretation, offering a sweeping heel and softly rounded rim, and all with a subtle forward momentum to keep things lively.
The Savinelli family has long shared their love of the sea through their pipes, with series like the Onda and Oceano coming to mind in particular. Added to those ocean-inspired lines is the Riccio, meaning "sea urchin" in Italian, and presenting a crisply striated rustication overtop a virgin finish. While the texture and natural briar calls to mind the Cocco series, the Riccio orients its grooved streaks differently as they emanate from the side of the lower bowl for a slightly offset position that better resembles its namesake. Fitting further with the line's theme, this piece is fitted with a stem of proprietary acrylic — the sea urchin-purple and -orange tones contrasting against the stummel's natural hue, which will darken as this pipe is enjoyed over the years.- Chuck Stanion
