Savinelli: Noce (616 KS) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-64323
One of the most full-bodied examples of Savinelli's approach to the bent Billiard, the "616 KS" dramatizes the standard form with especially robust proportions. It features a hearty bowl and generous chamber with an equally plump shank and stem. It's noticeably more muscular and deep-chambered compared to the marque's other bent Billiards like the "606 KS," "670 KS," "602," and "603" designs. The "616 KS" offers plenty of reinforcing briar at its chamber walls, transition, and shank, filling the palm with ease and exemplifying what it means to be considered an iconic Italian bent Billiard.
Aptly named after the Italian word for "walnut," Savinelli's Noce line (pronounced "no-chay") utilizes a virgin-stained rustication to resemble the craggy texture of its namesake. Like the Italian marque's Spinosa and Cocco series, the Noce offers unstained briar that will darken with a patina over time, the natural medium deepening and darkening as it's smoked. Each line, however, features a slightly different texture and varying stem colors, with the Noce offering a more traditional style of rustication and boasting the most rugged finish of the three, paired to an acrylic stem of swirling caramel hues as well as one of classic jet-black.- Jeffery Sitts
