Savinelli: Dry System Smooth (613) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-64422
A comfortably bent saddle stem is paired to a full-bodied bowl in this "613" bent Billiard from Savinelli, offering a similar profile to that of the "614" Oom Paul but with a softer S-curve. The shank is well defined and muscular, while the transition is almost that of an Oom Paul — very high-set, yet still well differentiating the shank and bowl. Meanwhile, the heel is broad, echoing the shank's stoutness and offering a firm base from which rises the softly curved bowl. Balanced for comfort when clenched and also fitting substantially in hand, this "613" is a versatile pipe whose shaping does well to represent Savinelli's signature take on classic designs.
Designed to promote a dry, cool smoking experience, pipes within Savinelli's Dry System series feature wells inside the shank that extend past the draft hole to catch unwanted condensation. The stems also feature rounded buttons that spread the smoke across the palate for more consistent and balanced flavor. While other makers offer pipes of similar construction, few are engineered to allow filters; however, the Dry System still accommodates Savinelli's 6mm balsa filters. Fitted with a flashy mount, this particular example wears a ruby-tinged, auburn stain and smooth finish for a classy and traditional presentation.- Chuck Stanion
