Savinelli: Siena (606 KS) (9mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-65008
While many designs on Savinelli's shape chart cater more toward traditional English and French shaping cues when compared to the bold, bowl-centric proportions of other Italian makers, the "606 KS" bent Billiard leans more heavily into that Italian neoclassic style. The bowl is full and robust, dominating the visual weight to leave the shank and stem in more slender, supporting roles. Hearty of chamber, it poses a proud comforting disposition as one of Savinelli's largest bent Billiard renditions, with only the "616 KS" presenting a more muscular profile through the shank. The "606 KS" offers a substantial feel in hand, and the lithe bend and angled shank make for an effortless clench when smoking hands free.
Savinelli's Siena line, named for the city in Tuscany, is one of the marque's most traditionally inclined and reserved series, finishing stummels in a warm, mahogany stain and pairing them to jet-black acrylic mouthpieces. Fitting its namesake, the line's stain resembles the red brick of Siena's Piazza del Campo, the city's main square, which features the Torre del Mangia, the second tallest medieval tower in Italy. Unlike the majority of Savinelli pipes that are drilled to accommodate 6mm filters, the Siena is composed of pieces that accept 9mm balsa filters. Aesthetically, it's an elegantly understated presentation and is an ideal choice for pipe smokers who prefer 9mm filters or, simply, a wider airway.-Truett Smith
