Savinelli: Roma (816 KS) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-62833
Savinelli's "816 KS" shape combines elements of the classic Foursquare and an oval-shanked Billiard. The bowl remains traditional and not paneled like that of the Foursquare, and the shank, while paneled, is rectangular in cross section instead of square. Such a shaping cue makes for a more sleek and diminutive shank-and-stem combination, adding visual prominence to the firm-heeled bowl and accentuating this pipe's Italian neoclassic aesthetic. It's a generous design with plenty of chamber capacity and the added benefit of sitting upright on a flat surface.
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 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
