Savinelli: Roma (802) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-68325
The bold, svelte "802" Canadian from Savinelli presents a classic shape with a bit of Italian styling in its prominent heel. The long oval shank maintains low altitude at the transition, reinforcing the august ascension of the bowl as a distinct element. Offering subtle ridgelines along each side of the shank for a bit of structural foundation, this classic English shape has been ably rendered in striking Italian style.
It's only fitting that one of Italy's most historic and esteemed pipe manufacturers would devote a line to one of the country's most celebrated cities: Rome. From Antiquity and empire to Renaissance and cultural center, the Italian capital tells the story of millennia through its architecture, statues, piazzas, and fountains. Savinelli's Roma series pays tribute to this history, presenting a dark rustication, accented with a trim, brass ring at the base of the vulcanite stem. The lighter-stained, smooth-polished rim echoes that elegant contrast, and the mouthpiece trades the Italian marque's usual coat of arms logo for one emblazoned with an "R," distinguishing the Rome-inspired line.- Chuck Stanion
