Savinelli: One Starter Kit Smooth (601) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-64346
A modestly sized bent Billiard appropriate for dropping into a jacket pocket, Savinelli's "601" is a sturdy take on the pipe chart standard, with a wide heel, high-set transition, and slightly tapering bowl. While quite muscular and visually significant in its shaping, the shank of this "601" doesn't over tighten the transition, extending at a 45 degree angle, almost to the height of the rim, for a comfortable thumb rest between shank and bowl.
With the One Starter Kit series, Savinelli provides beginning pipe smokers all the tools needed to start smoking a pipe. Foremost is the pipe, obviously, with this example wearing a smooth, medium-contrast finish. The kit also includes a Czech pipe tool — replete with a tamper, pick, and scoop — pipe cleaners, 6mm balsa filters, and a handy travel case. The only thing left to do is find a tobacco blend, with one of Savinelli's esteemed mixtures being an appropriate and quality choice.
Depending on Savinelli's supply and the availability of balsa, this kit might not include the 6mm balsa-wood filters shown in the photograph. They are sold separately, though, in 20-count packages.- Chuck Stanion
