Savinelli: Tigre Rusticated Black (645 KS) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-68657
Savinelli's "645 KS" is a wide, stout take on the bent Brandy, the bowl prioritizing breadth over height, yet still boasting a respectably deep chamber within. The bowl wears its waistline low before subtly tapering up toward the rim, while the transition offers ample room for the thumb to rest. Unlike the Italian marque's "628" bent Brandy, the "645 KS" is a low-slung take on the classic shape with the bowl more Apple-esque in its curvature, and it displays a greater degree of bend compared to the "144 KS." It's an ideal choice for pipe smokers who prefer robust, substantial designs that also remain balanced and lightweight enough to be clenched comfortably in the jaw.
Inspired by the restrained ferocity and quiet power of a tiger, Savinelli's Tigre series showcases nine classic Savinelli shapes, all united by exotic, bengal-patterned acrylic stems — custom cast specifically for this series. The black, low-profile rustication here resembles the sly prowess of the line's namesake feline, while the vibrant hues of the mouthpiece are a limber, pouncing burst of accenting color. Eye-catching without becoming ostentatious, this piece exemplifies Savinelli's deft fusion of modern flair and timeless elegance, resulting in an attractive pipe that carries a statement of confidence.-Truett Smith
