Savinelli: Flambé Rusticated Brown (606 KS) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-66672
While many designs on Savinelli's shape chart cater more toward traditional English and French shaping cues when compared to the bold, bowl-centric proportions of other Italian makers, the "606 KS" bent Billiard leans more heavily into that Italian neoclassic style. The bowl is full and robust, dominating the visual weight to leave the shank and stem in more slender, supporting roles. Hearty of chamber, it poses a proud comforting disposition as one of Savinelli's largest bent Billiard renditions, with only the "616 KS" presenting a more muscular profile through the shank. The "606 KS" offers a substantial feel in hand, and the lithe bend and angled shank make for an effortless clench when smoking hands free.
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
