Savinelli: Miele (642) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-66577
Italian pipe making design is often marked by disparate proportions between the bowl and shank, with the former usually dominating a piece's visual weight. Such an aesthetic is championed throughout Savinelli's portfolio; however, the Italian marque's "642" bent Apple forgoes this shaping style. Instead, this piece features a robust shank that rivals the bowl's plump muscularity. The proportions are hearty and appeal, especially to those who enjoy the signature look of Peterson, particularly their "XL02" bent Apple.
Meaning "honey" in Italian, Savinelli's Miele line recalls its namesake through the use of a golden color palette and crystalline visual texture — the stummel wearing a vivid, honey-blonde stain and being paired to an acrylic stem that resembles the mosaic-like structure of honeycomb. Furthermore, the chamber has been treated with a honey extract, promoting a sweet-smoking break-in period, and it all comes complete with a wooden tamper in the shape of a honey dipper.-Truett Smith
