Savinelli: Bacco Smooth Natural (645 KS) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-64472
Savinelli's "645 KS" is a wide, stout take on the bent Brandy, the bowl prioritizing breadth over height, yet still boasting a respectably deep chamber within. The bowl wears its waistline low before subtly tapering up toward the rim, while the transition offers ample room for the thumb to rest. Unlike the Italian marque's "628" bent Brandy, the "645 KS" is a low-slung take on the classic shape with the bowl more Apple-esque in its curvature, and it displays a greater degree of bend compared to the "144 KS." It's an ideal choice for pipe smokers who prefer robust, substantial designs that also remain balanced and lightweight enough to be clenched comfortably in the jaw.
Savinelli's Bacco series pays tribute to Bacchus, Roman god of the grape harvest, wine, ritual madness, fertility, theater, and just about all things associated with raucous parties. In Roman culture, wine and the grapes that produce it were viewed not only as gifts from the god, but also as symbolic representations of him on Earth. In Savinelli's homage to the deity and all Italian red wines, a shimmering Bordeaux-colored mouthpiece is used to evoke the appearance of the historic imbibement. The vibrant mouthpiece is paired to either a smooth, natural stain or a rugged, burgundy-hued rustication, with bright metal bands accenting the stem base.- Jeffery Sitts
