Savinelli: Regimental Smooth Bordeaux (602) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-64116
Trimmer and more lithe than is usual in typically robust Italian pipe design, Savinelli's "602" is a bent Billiard with more of a Danish flair, especially noticeable in the sweeping curves of the silhouette and slight taper of the bowl toward the rim. The proportions between bowl and shank, though, return us to bowl-centric Italian territory, contributing to a bold, sporty, and active character, as appropriate in a sports car as in an armchair.
In honor of the British Army's Cheshire Regiment, Savinelli here presents the Regimental series, featuring rusticated and smooth-finished versions. Before being merged to form the Mercian Regiment and 1st Battalion in 2003, the Cheshire Regiment was the only remaining British infantry regiment never to have been amalgamated, and it boasted a rich history dating over 300 years, beginning originally as the 22nd Regiment of Foot and expanded in 1881 with volunteers from Cheshire. The insignia and dress ties of the regiment display its identifying gold and burgundy color palette, and Savinelli has leaned into that aesthetic for this series, with each pipe featuring a burgundy-hued acrylic stem with twin bands of golden yellow adorning the base.- Chuck Stanion
