Savinelli: Tigre Rusticated Black (642) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-63220
Italian pipemaking design is often marked by disparate proportions between the bowl and shank, with the former usually dominating a piece's visual weight. Such an aesthetic is championed throughout Savinelli's portfolio; however, the Italian marque's "642" bent Apple forgoes this shaping style. Instead, this piece features a robust shank that rivals the bowl's plump muscularity. The proportions are hearty and appeal, especially to those who enjoy the signature look of Peterson, particularly their "XL02" bent Apple.
Inspired by the restrained ferocity and quiet power of a tiger, Savinelli's Tigre series showcases nine classic Savinelli shapes, all united by exotic, bengal-patterned acrylic stems — custom cast specifically for this series. The black, low-profile rustication here resembles the sly prowess of the line's namesake feline, while the vibrant hues of the mouthpiece are a limber, pouncing burst of accenting color. Eye-catching without becoming ostentatious, this piece exemplifies Savinelli's deft fusion of modern flair and timeless elegance, resulting in an attractive pipe that carries a statement of confidence.-Truett Smith
