Savinelli: Flambé Rusticated Brown (677 KS) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-66707
A bent Billiard with a supple, Brandy-like taper toward the rim, Savinelli's "677 KS" is a compact yet full-bodied take on the classic English shape. Per the Italian marque's shaping conventions, Savinelli has elaborated on the standard design, adding mass to the base and transition with extra height and taper lent to the bowl, all paired to one of their signature triangular shanks. With plenty of chamber but in a convenient overall size, this "677 KS" maintains a traditional profile imbued with just enough accenting touches to make it the distinctive work of Savinelli.
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
