Savinelli: Foresta Smooth Natural (628) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-65023
Savinelli's "628" bent Brandy displays a tall, conservatively tapered bowl at the end of a smooth, slightly elongated and curling transition. The shape features an excellent balance of supple curves and elegant line work throughout, with the bowl tapering more subtly toward the rim and posing a leaner profile than the Italian marque's other bent Brandy designs, namely the "644 KS" and "645 KS." Comparatively, the "628" prioritizes height over plumpness, catering more toward traditional English renditions, and houses a deeper chamber inside the more slender, poised bowl.
An aptly named series, Savinelli's Foresta line — "forest" in Italian — is defined by a deep, green color palette. The custom-cast acrylic stem reveals a rich, conifer hue that leads tastefully into a trio of variegated acrylic accents — displaying a range of green hues from moss and olive to turquoise and lime — separated by twin nickel rings. It's a complex, tantalizing motif, offering nuanced visual texture that's elegant and refined when paired to this example's smooth, honey-blonde finish.- Jeffery Sitts
