Savinelli: Dolomiti Rusticated (106) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-66293
While Italian pipes are popularly known for their dramatic, bowl-centric sense of proportions, Savinelli's "106" leans more into the classic English design. Compared to the Italian marque's other straight Billiards, like the "101," "111 KS," "128," and "141 KS," the "106" Billiard is rendered in trimmer style, with more balanced proportions between bowl and shank. It's a wonderful rendition of the classic form, archetypically English and perfect for those interested in the history and quality of Savinelli but prefer a more conservative, reserved size.
Inspired by the iconic Dolomite mountain range in northeastern Italy, as well as the sedimentary carbonate rock of the same name found there and in various historic buildings throughout Rome, Savinelli's Dolomiti series is fittingly characterized by its earthy brown color palette. This particular example wears a chocolate-stained, rusticated finish, accented by a small beige acrylic band, as well as a matching acrylic mouthpiece of variegated caramel and cream tones. Such an aesthetic calls to mind the appearance of the mountains near dusk when the last rays of sunlight lend the pale grey stone a darker, richer, and warmer color.-Truett Smith
