Savinelli: Bacco Rusticated Dark Brown (311 KS) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-64474
Savinelli's "311 KS" Poker is a resolute, yet dynamic take on the classic utilitarian shape characterized by the bowl's pronounced forward cant and succinct saddle stem displaying the lightest hint of downward turn. Its sturdy sitting capability makes it the perfect desk pipe while the crisply chamfered rim echoes the firm aesthetic of the defined transition and cylindrical bowl. It's also a slightly more compact offering compared to the Italian marque's other Poker design, the "310 KS," which displays a raised, rounded rim and a slightly longer downturned stem. While the "311 KS" is somewhat downsized, it certainly doesn't sacrifice anything in regards to chamber depth or its charming practicality.
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
