Savinelli: Flambé Rusticated Brown (111 KS) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-66628
A classically inclined, deep-chambered rendition of the timeless Billiard, Savinelli's "111 KS" is a bold take on the shape chart standard and is proudly Italian in its execution. The towering bowl commands much of the shape's visual weight, paired to a comparatively slimmer, round shank and tapered mouthpiece. The "111 KS" is closely related to the marque's "104" Billiard, with the primary difference being that this "111 KS" is slightly longer and contains more muscular proportions throughout. Such features are ideal for fans of traditional pipe designs who also prefer an arrangement that offers more chamber depth for longer smokes and a substantial presence in hand.
Italian pipe design is widely celebrated for its often dramatic reinterpretations of classic pipe shapes and its use of distinctive finishes. Among the most iconic Italian finishes are those marked by fumed rims: Dating to the 1960s and distinguished by dark, near-black upper bowls that graduate to lighter hues across the rest of the stummel, the decades-old aesthetic lends pipes a rustic, weathered look. Savinelli's limited-production and retro-inspired Flambé series celebrates this signature Italian finish through a dense rustication and a deep, red-brown stain that darkens toward the rim, solidifying the finish's Italian identity. The Flambé name denotes the stain's recognizable gradient, meaning "flamed" or "blazed" in French and referencing the culinary technique of glazing dishes with liquor and briefly setting them alight.-Truett Smith
