Savinelli: Tre Smooth (114 KS) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-65703
Savinelli boasts a rather robust shape chart, not to mean that all of their shapes are robust, but the diversity of shapes is grand. The Italian marque has an especially wide array of straight Billiard designs, all differing in their size and proportions. The "114 KS" is one of only two saddle-stemmed varieties, joining the "110," and it sits right in the middle of Savinelli's size spectrum: It's a touch larger than the "104" and "106" but exhibits a trimmer style than, say, the "101," more similar to the "111 KS." Lovers of English classics will appreciate the traditional shaping and relative proportions but with a slightly larger bowl to ensure a comforting in-hand feel and plenty of chamber space.
The vast majority of Savinelli's portfolio consists of pipes drilled with a 6mm airway to accommodate the Italian marque's proprietary balsa filters. While these filtered Savinelli pipes come with an included adapter for use without a filter, some pipe smokers prefer not to deal with that added accessory. Thankfully, Savinelli offers the Tre series: It's a line devoted to pipes with a 3mm draft hole, tre meaning "three" in Italian. No filters. No adapters. Just briar. With this particular offering dressed in the line's smooth, honey-blonde finish, resembling Savinelli's Siena series but with the added elegance of a trim brass accent ring.-Truett Smith
